In the fall of 2021, the Canadian Council for Practical Nurse Regulators embarked on a project to update its Code of Ethics. The project aims to incorporate current and anticipated changes in health care impacting the regulation of Licensed Practical Nurses in Canada, including the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission report, cultural safety issues, and Medical Assistance in Dying legislation, among other changes.
Throughout 2022, a working group appointed by the CCPNR's Board of Directors, together with the project consultants, considered the results of a literature review, key informant interviews, and focus groups in updating the document. In November 2022, the Board approved the draft updated Code of Ethics for consultation and validation.
The purpose of this survey is to obtain your input into and validate the updated Code of Ethics by collecting feedback from practicing professionals as well as stakeholders. This feedback will be used to finalize the document before being approved by the CCPNR's Board for launch in 2023.
