New members elected to NMAC committee.
The draft for the Standards for Nursing Practice has been completed and will be out for consultation shortly. We look forward to your feedback and anticipate significant response from the sections and colleges who use the document to develop their specialty standards for practice.
The committee is developing the first draft of the Social Policy Position Statement. This statement will reflect the realities for nurses in the current health environment. The first draft of the Quality Improvement and Risk Management Position Statement is also being developed, as well as a position statement on telenursing. A position statement on professional/clinical supervision will be developed in the future.
NMAC has once again administered the Florence Nightingale Scholarship Fund. There was an overwhelming number of applications and the decision-making process was difficult. I would like to acknowledge those students who persevere with their studies despite financial difficulties, and nurses taking on further studies to advance their practice.
I would like to thank Louise Rummel and Denise Irvine for the tremendous contribution they have made to NMAC over the last two years. And I welcome two new members, Mary McManaway and Joanne Agnew.
I look forward to the next two years as part of NMAC and the opportunity to complete work already started.
