What We Do
Our mandate is to protect the public. Here are some of the ways we do our work:
- We establish and maintain a registration process that ensures those who practice as registered nurses or graduate nurses are qualified and competent.
- We set and maintain nursing practice standards that registered nurses must meet every day to ensure safe, competent and ethical registered nursing care.
- We approve nursing education programs to ensure students get the education they need to perform the competencies of a registered nurse.
- We receive and investigate complaints about the nursing practice and conduct of registered nurses and determine appropriate remedial or disciplinary actions as required.
The College has been the professional regulatory body for registered nurses in Manitoba since 1913. The Registered Nurses Act and Regulations set out the College's responsibilities until May 31, 2018 when we will become governed under the Regulated Health Professions Act and Registered Nursing Regulation.
- Support registered nurses to meet and maintain regulatory standards.
- Work collaboratively to advance RN regulation.
- Increase awareness of the role of the College.

Three Pillars of Registered Nursing
In Manitoba, we recognize the importance of a “three-pillared” approach to registered nursing: a regulator, association and union. There is value in all organizations, as each has a unique mission and perspective. Click here to learn about the role of each.
