As the summer of 2016 begins and temperatures rise, extreme heat poses a risk for patients and families, as high temperatures can cause heat-related illnesses, exacerbate pre-existing conditions, or even result in death.
Fortunately, many instances of heat-related illness are preventable. Together with Health Canada, the Ontario College of Family Physicians and the Clean Air Partnership, McMaster University has designed a free, accredited program to give health care providers the training and tools to better prevent and manage heat-related illnesses.
The National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) is seeking RN volunteers (criteria below) to participate in upcoming meetings related to RN practice analysis, and knowledge, skills and abilities (KSA) analysis. RN Practice Analysis and KSA meetings are held every three years to ensure that the NCLEX-RN® exam continues to reflect current nursing practice.
The Canadian Council of Registered Nurse Regulators (CCRNR) is pleased to publish the first national report on the NCLEX-RN for Canadian writers. This comprehensive document breaks down numbers into areas such as first-second-and-third attempts, pass rates by province and territory, and success in comparison to test plan categories.
On Feb. 22, 2016, the Canadian Council of Registered Nurse Regulators (CCRNR) released the findings of the Nurse Practitioner (NP) Practice Analysis. The Analysis was conducted by CCRNR, with participation of representatives from 11 of 12 Canadian nursing regulatory bodies (including ARNNL). The Analysis provided an opportunity to engage a number of stakeholders including Canadian administrators, researchers and educators, experts from each stream of NP practice, as well as practicing NPs across Canada.
