Registered Psychiatric Nurses, Partnering with People

Call for RFP to revise & update Standards of Practice

January 29, 2018

The College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of Alberta (CRPNA), the College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of British Columbia (CRPNBC), the College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of Manitoba (CRPNM) and the Registered Psychiatric Nurses Association of Saskatchewan (RPNAS), collectively “the RPN regulators”, are regulatory bodies that protect the public by regulating psychiatric nurses in their respective provinces. One
method of protecting the public is by establishing standards for Registered Psychiatric Nurse (RPN) practice. We are seeking a consultant to review and update the existing Standards of Psychiatric Nursing Practice.

The RPN regulators schedule a review of the Standards for Psychiatric Nursing Practice every five (5) years. This is done to ensure the document remains current and relevant and is reflective of current psychiatric nursing practice. The Standards of Psychiatric Nursing Practice describe, in broad terms, the expected level of performance of all RPNs. The standards provide a guide to the knowledge, skills, values, judgment, and attitudes that are needed to support competent, safe, and ethical psychiatric nursing practice.
