RN(NP) Info and Updates

We do our best to keep you up to date on new information as it is released. However, it is your responsibility to check this page often to make sure you are aware of important updates and changes to your practice.

Updates

Titles

Registered Nurse Extended Practice or RN(EP) and Nurse Practitioner or RN(NP) are used interchangeably in Manitoba.

The titles RN(EP) and RN(NP) are protected under The Registered Nurses Act. Their use is restricted to RNs who have met and maintain the requirements for registration on the extended practice register. Click here to learn about the use of Regulated Professional Titles.

We’ve launched the formal consultation process related to our General Council Regulation under The Regulated Health Professions Act (RHPA). During our consultation process, we've had conversations with RN(NP)s across the province related to title protection. Katherine Stansfield RN, Executive Director, explains the College's position on this in a webinar. Click here to view the webinar.
