The College of Registered Nurses of Manitoba is a member of the Canadian Nurse Regulators Collaborative (CNRC) who recently initiated the Language Proficiency Project to review and update recommendations related to assessing language proficiency in English and French for safe and effective nursing practice in Canada. As part of the Language Proficiency Project, the CNRC is conducting a survey to gather information about essential language skills required for safe and effective nursing practice in Canada.
We encourage you to consider completing the survey. Please read each statement carefully and choose the answer that best applies to your practice. A few questions ask you to provide information. You will notice that most questions ask you to rate the importance of language skills in nursing practice. By “important,” it means how critical and essential the language skill is to providing safe and quality patient care daily. The language skills are divided into four sections: writing, reading, speaking, and listening.
The questionnaire takes about 25-30 minutes to complete, and the survey closes June 30, 2022.
Your answers will be kept confidential. Your responses to the questions will not be released. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you so much. Your input is greatly appreciated!
