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 RNs are qualified and competent.
- We set and maintain nursing practice standards for RNs.
- We approve nursing education programs.
- We receive and investigate complaints about the nursing practice and conduct of RNs.
The College has been the professional regulator for RNs 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.
