Update: Changes to Find a Nurse Information
As part of the College’s move to greater transparency, more information is becoming publicly available about Ontario’s nurses later this year. Following discussion and review of feedback from the public, nurses and other stakeholders at its June and September 2015 meetings, Council approved the addition of the following information to nurses’ profiles in Find a Nurse:
- Remedial Activity
- Registrations in other jurisdictions
- Discipline findings in other jurisdictions
- Criminal charges relevant to the nurse’s practice
- Health facility privileges (for Nurse Practitioners)
This information will begin appearing on the Register on Tuesday, Dec. 15, 2015.
On Sept. 15, 2015, nurses’ self-reporting obligations for some of this information changed. Nurses can go to the Maintain Your Membership section to report registrations in other jurisdictions and NPs can use it to provide information about hospital privileges. Nurses should use the self-reporting form to provide information about bail conditions and findings in other jurisdictions.
Recommendations for how long Cautions and Remedial Activity information will remain on Find a Nurse are currently circulating in the September issue of The Standard for member and stakeholder feedback. Council will make its final decision based on feedback received at its December 2015 meeting.
