Resolutions are an important way to raise issues for discussion at the Annual General Meeting and to request action by ARNNL Council. Resolutions are advisory in nature and therefore not binding on Council. Resolutions consistent with ARNNL's mandate and role may be submitted by special interest groups or individual members. Resolutions can be submitted by mail, fax or email. View ARNNL's guidelines on submission of resolutions. The deadline for submission of resolutions is May 10, 2019.
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.
