Opportunity for Input - Registered Nurses in Management Positions

CRNNL is currently conducting a Survey of RNs in Management Positions. This survey is our primary source of nursing management data and, as far as we are aware, the only comprehensive, provincial survey of RNs in management positions.

Results of this survey provide valuable data for CRNNL and other stakeholders such as the provincial government’s Health Human Resources division. This year we have collaborated with the provincial Schools of Nursing to collect evaluation data on performance of new RN, NP and MN graduates.
