Guide for New RNs
Welcome to Registered Nursing in Manitoba
It’s together with you that we protect the public. While the College sets the standards with input from RNs, it’s through your day-to-day work that you demonstrate the standards and in so doing deliver safe, competent and ethical registered nursing services.
What does the College do?
The College of Registered Nurses of Manitoba is the regulatory body for all graduate nurses, registered nurses, nurse practitioners and graduate nurse practitioners in Manitoba. The purpose of regulation is to protect the public by ensuring that applicants meet the requirements to practise as an RN in Manitoba. You can find more information about our role by reviewing our Guide for New RNs.
