ARNNL/CLPNNL Direction on Role of RNs, NPs and LPNs in Administering and Distribution of Medical Cannabis

December 3, 2018

ARNNL and CLPNNL has been asked by stakeholders to provide direction on the role of RNs, NPs and LPNs in the administering and distribution of medical cannabis.  The following collaborative memo sets out our organizations’ position at this point in time. It reflects information from multiple sources including professional legal options such as the Canadian Nurses Protective Society.

This information has been provided to assist employers to develop their own policies and processes and for members to understand the regulating implications when their practice involves the administration or distribution of medical cannabis.

The information is distributed to members and will also be posted to our respective websites. For more information, please click here.
