Being part of a self-regulated profession means that RNs and NPs govern nursing, and are the ‘self’ in self-regulation. ARNNL engages its members to contribute their knowledge and expertise to its work, and their involvement has a meaningful impact on nursing and health care in the province. RNs and NPs serve ARNNL in many capacities, such as:
- elected members of ARNNL Council
- members of ARNNL committees, working groups and disciplinary panel
- participants of ARNNL’s Workplace Representative program
- participants in advocacy campaigns, focus groups, and research surveys
Your participation is vital to ensure broad-based input into the work of the Association. If you chose to volunteer, you can be assured your work will make a significant difference in helping us to fulfill our mission.
If you wish to become an RN volunteer, your name will be added to our RN Resource Index - a database of RNs who are interested in contributing to achieving the goals of the Association. If you are interested in volunteering and are not already enrolled in the resource index, you can complete the online form. Please be advised that we will keep your profile on file for a period of two years. In order to be sure you are still interested in volunteering for ARNNL activities, it will be necessary to submit another profile at that time.
National Volunteer Opportunities
There are also volunteer opportunities for ARNNL members to participate in exam development:
National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCLEX-RN)
Canadian Council of Registered Nurse Regulators (Nurse Practitioner)
Have Your Say
ARNNL Council "links to listen”. The overall purpose of linking with members is to ensure members have input into the policy direction and results of the Association. Council's goals for linking are:
- to be accountable
- to clarify values and create the future, and
- to build relationships.
The information collected by linking with members and the public is used by Council to review progress towards ARNNL's goals (ENDs) and to help identify any new issues which we should be focusing our attention.
Members are invited to answer the linkage question (below) and to share your views on the goals Council has set for the ARNNL.
