Update on advanced practice nursing in Canada

Register today!

The Canadian Nurses Association led the creation of the revised Advanced Practice Nursing: A Pan-Canadian Framework. It aims to provide a common understanding of advanced practice among nurses, students, educators, policy-makers, researchers and other stakeholders. The framework includes new elements such as revised competencies, the impact and outcomes of advanced practice nursing, and strategies for successful implementation, integration and sustainability. We hope you can join us and get the latest information on advanced practice nursing in Canada.

Presented by:
