Leadership Opportunity … Run for ARNNL Council

Would you like to shape the advancement of nursing regulation and practice in your profession? As a member of ARNNL Council you will fulfill one of the most important responsibilities of being a registered nurse (RN) - leading your regulatory body in the public’s interest. Why not run for election as a Domain or Regional Councillor and/or nominate an RN who can make this valuable contribution to the profession? To be a candidate for election, the nominee must be a registered nurse who resides within the province and holds a practicing license in good standing issued by ARNNL. Any current member of ARNNL (practicing, non-practicing, honourary) can nominate an RN.

ARNNL members are invited to submit nominations for the following offices:

  • Domain Councillors
    • Practice
    • Advanced Practice

Domain Councillors (2019-2022):
