RPNAS is pleased to announce the launch of a new Standards of Psychiatric Nursing Practice (2019) document for RPN members. These standards were revised and updated for national use by the Registered Psychiatric Nurse Regulators of Canada and adopted by the RPNAS Council November 30, 2019.

The Standards of Psychiatric Nursing Practice (2019) outlines in broad terms the expected level of performance of all RPNs. The Standards come into effect December 15, 2019 and replace the 2010 Standards document.
