ARNNL and CLPNNL has been asked by stakeholders to provide direction on the role of RNs, NPs and LPNs in the administering and distribution of medical cannabis. The following collaborative memo sets out our organizations’ position at this point in time. It reflects information from multiple sources including professional legal options such as the Canadian Nurses Protective Society.
ARNNL is seeking feedback on our Continuing Competence Program (CCP).

The purpose of the evaluation is to revise the current CCP to ensure that it is meaningful to members and that they are motivated to engage in the Program.
