RNANT/NU VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

Make a difference and sign up today, great experience for all members!

Nursing holds the privilege of being a self-regulating profession under the guidelines of the NT Nursing Profession Act (2003) and the NU Nursing Act (1998). The RNANT/NU is the professional association of registered nurses and nurse practitioners within the Northwest Territories and Nunavut that upholds these guidelines for the protection of the public. Mandated by the Acts, the RNANT/NU is required to establish committees supported by volunteer members to guide the profession of nursing in our jurisdictions.

Committee work may involve providing feedback on documents, assisting with registration or professional conduct decisions, or reviewing policy updates. Meeting are held monthly or bi-monthly depending on the committee.

All members can participate as you can call in from anywhere in the Northwest Territories or Nunavut.

There are various committees in which members can become involved; each having a different focus and varying level of commitment.

Board of Directors Education Advisory Committee
Newsletter Committee Professional Conduct Committee

If you would like to be a part of the exciting work being done at the RNANT/NU, please complete the V.O.I.C.E. form here (now a fillable form).

Committee positions are filled as vacancies arise. When there is a vacancy, the V.O.I.C.E. forms submitted by interested members are reviewed.

The RNANT/NU makes every attempt to ensure committees represent our membership; therefore, the goal is for committees to have nurses with a variety of years of experience, from different practice settings, and from different regions.
