The main objectives of the Employer Reference Group is to:

  • Discuss and collaborate on regulatory related topics of interest
  • Clarify respective roles related to public protection
  • Identify areas to support employers needs relating to nursing regulation such as policies, standards, guidelines, reporting and professional conduct processes
