Professional conduct review: Committee Members needed.
How can I contribute to my professional association?
The Nurses Act mandates your professional association to maintain a number of standing committees, which includes the Complaints Committee and the Discipline and Review Committees. These committees assure a mechanism for dealing with complaints about a nurse's practice. The majority of committee members are registered nurses. Other members represent the public.
Each year, the NANB Board of Directors appoints members to these committees. The factors which must be considered when selecting committee members are:
* geographic area, language, gender, years of nursing experience (at least five years), and area of nursing experience.
We are presently looking for committee members with various nursing backgrounds and who represent the different attributes listed above. The term of office, which begins September 1st of any given year, is for a period of two years and may be renewed for a second term.
If you are interested in becoming professionally involved, there may be an opportunity for you to participate on one of these committees.
