The College

About our work

The College of Registered Nurses of Manitoba is Manitoba’s registered nursing regulator and is responsible for overseeing the practice of registered nursing in our province.

That means we ensure that all registered nurses and nurse practitioners are qualified to provide safe, ethical care ─ in the same way that driver licensing helps ensure that anyone who has a driver’s license can operate a vehicle safely on our roads.

We have been guiding the registered nursing profession since 1913, and throughout that time we’ve been committed to one central goal: protection and service of the public interest through quality registered nursing regulation.
