Entry-level competencies describe what is expected of entry-level RNs in order to provide safe, competent and ethical nursing care in a variety of practice settings. The competencies are used in the approval of nursing education programs. They also serve as a guide to curriculum development in entry-level (undergraduate) nursing programs and inform the public and employers of the practice expectations of entry-level RNs.

Under the RHPA, the status of an RN is public information. Employers have a responsibility to verify that the RNs they employ have a certificate of practice with the College.
As an employer, if you terminate or suspend an RN for professional incompetence or misconduct, you must report this to the College.
