Decisions

Decisions listed below are as at Jul. 9, 2019.

Why does the College publish this information?

  1. To comply with The Regulated Health Professions Act (RHPA).
  2. To demonstrate the open and transparent nature of the College’s professional conduct review process.
  3. To educate our members on the types of actions, behaviours, conduct and activities that result in discipline findings or censures. We believe this information can help RNs avoid similar situations.

The authority to have an Inquiry Committee and a Complaints Investigation Committee monitor, impose conditions, remediate, censure, cancel, suspend or accept the voluntary surrender of a member is granted under the RHPA.

You can also find summaries of decisions in our annual reports.

Censures and reprimands are formal, written expressions of strong disapproval or rebuke. They are issued by the College’s Complaints Investigation Committee and Inquiry Committee. Censure and reprimand are often words used interchangeably when referring to this type of formal written sanction.
