Where your money goes
Your annual membership fee supports the cost of regulating nursing in the public interest, which includes registering applicants, developing practice documents, administering a Quality Assurance Program, providing information about practice and addressing concerns about conduct. Almost 87 percent of the College’s revenue is generated by membership fees.
Over the next few years, resources will be allotted to a number of initiatives including:
investing in technology to increase the efficiency of processes
