Practice Expectations for RN(NP)s
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.
September 2019 - Death Certification: Click here to watch Dr. Younnes Death Certification workshop, then notify us at email@example.com upon finishing the presentation. You will be notified as soon as proclamation of the legislation occurs. It is in the scope of practice for an RN(NP) to order an autopsy and write a letter of expected death.
July 2019 - Use 204-926-3650 to fax requisitions for urgent and elective ultrasound in the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority. All requisitions for urgent and elective ultrasounds in the WRHA must go through Diagnostic Imaging Central Intake (the process for emergent remains the same, as does the requisition process for ultrasounds in all other Regional Health Authorities). Special attention is given to urgent requests to ensure that patients are seen within the necessary timeframe at the most appropriate site. Requisitions are not processed unless sent through Central Intake. This change aims to improve wait times and reduce the number of double bookings and no shows. Click here for information on the WRHA site.
October 2018 - Removal of lisdexamfetamine (Vyvanse®), methylphenidate OROS (Concerta®), and methylphenidate MLR (Biphentin®) from the M3P Program. These drugs are still covered under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act so all other restrictions on the prescribing of the drugs still apply. Click here for more information.
