During a pandemic, a number of factors, such as a shortage of staff or hospital resources, may contribute to challenges in applying the College’s practice standards. Proper planning is key to determining how well a facility and its nursing staff will manage these factors.
In the event that a pandemic is declared by the provincial Ministry of Health, the College of Nurses has a number of resources that can help nurses understand their responsibilities during a large-scale health emergency.
These resources will help you learn what the College expects from nurses during a pandemic, as well as the practice standards and guidelines that are particularly relevant to nursing during such an emergency.
For pandemic preparation support specific to your sector, contact an Outreach Consultant.
