What We Heard – Amendments to the NWT Nursing Profession Act Discussion Paper Report Now Public

Press Release

Feedback on the public engagement discussion paper regarding the Nursing Profession Act has been compiled and is available in the What We Heard Report – Amendments to the NWT Nursing Profession Act.

The Department of Health and Social Services (DHSS) gathered feedback and recommendations in response to a Discussion Paper on proposed policy elements. These elements  will lay the groundwork to amend the Nursing Profession Act by creating one regulatory framework for all nursing professionals in the NWT.

The Discussion Paper contained questions for consideration and was posted on the DHSS website; comments and practical suggestions for implementation were received from 18 respondents.

The Registered Nurses Association of the Northwest Territories and Nunavut (RNANTNU), the Northwest Territories Medical Association, the Northwest Territories Pharmacy Association, the Health and Social Services Authorities, the Union of Northern Workers and AVENS – A Community for Seniors and Licensed Practical Nurses were also invited to provide feedback on the proposed amendments.

Based on the positive feedback received during the public engagement, the Department is moving forward with changes to the legislative framework.
