On May 31, 2018 we came under The Regulated Health Professions Act and our board is now called a council.

Council sets the vision and strategic direction for the College and governs in the interest of the public. This means they:

  • set the direction of the College including developing strategic priorities, a vision and values
  • anticipate and plan for trends in society, health care, and registered nursing practice
  • understand and lead the change in health regulation

Our council is made up of both RNs and public representatives in the following positions:

  • Chair
  • Chair-elect
  • Elected RNs
  • Public representatives (appointed by council and the Government of Manitoba) 

Upcoming Council Meetings

Council meetings are held four times each year and are open to the public. You can find highlights from previous meetings on NurseLink. If you're planning on attending a meeting, learn more here.
