Opportunity for Input - Draft Standards for NP Practice in NL

ARNNL is seeking your feedback on a new draft ARNNL document: Standards for Nurse Practitioner Practice in Newfoundland & Labrador.

The primary purpose of Nurse Practitioner (NP) Standards is to identify for NPs, the public, government and other stakeholders, the desired and achievable level of performance expected of NPs in their practice, against which actual performance can be measured.

Please review the draft document before proceeding to the survey. We estimate that it will take 15 minutes to review the document and 15 minutes to complete the survey.
