Abstract:
CASN Nursing Academic Leadership Conference: The College of Registered Nurses of Nova Scotia (CRNNS) is the regulatory body for registered nurses in Nova Scotia with the mission to regulate the practice of nursing in the public interest. The Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing (CASN) is the official accrediting agency for Canadian nursing education promoting excellence in nursing education programs. Historically there was significant overlap in the processes of accreditation and program approval, and significant financial and human resource costs. CRNNS, CASN and St. Francis Xavier University piloted a very effective integrated process for joint accreditation and approval in 2006, which demonstrated flexibility, openness and mutual respect from all participants. The College, CASN and university undergraduate nursing education programs in Nova Scotia are currently finalizing an agreement to continue the joint approval/accreditation process for Nova Scotia nursing education programs. The presentation will address lessons learned from the pilot project and how they were incorporated into the new agreement. The presentation will discuss the creation of a new template for creative partnerships in undergraduate nursing education while respecting the respective missions and mandates of each organization.
