College of Registered Nurses of Manitoba

Discipline Decisions and Censures

Discipline decisions are findings of the College’s Discipline Committee and inform members and the public of the outcomes of discipline hearings.

A censure is a formal written expression of strong disapproval or rebuke issued by the College’s Investigation Committee. Censure and reprimand are often words used interchangeably when referring to this type of formal written sanction.

The College publishes the results of discipline proceedings and notices of censures for two purposes:
  1. to demonstrate the open and transparent nature of the College’s complaints and discipline processes; and
  2. to educate our members on the types of actions, behaviours and activities that result in discipline findings or censures. We believe this information can help registered nurses avoid similar outcomes.

Written Summary of Discipline Committee Decisions Required

Notice of Censure

The Investigation Committee may order publication of the censure of a member. The publication may include the member’s name and/or registration number and a description of the circumstances that led to the censure. Publication of a censure demonstrates the open and transparent nature of the College’s complaints, investigations and discipline processes and also serves in preventing poor nursing practice by providing information/education to members about unacceptable conduct for their future guidance.
