Professional Practice Standards


The Professional Practice Standards (PPS) Committee reviews and develops recommendations for the Board pertaining to the standards of practice (including scope of practice) or professional ethics for nursing professionals.

Overv​​iew

PPS committee members are a combination of registrants from all nursing designations, and members of the public. Committee appointments are for 1, 2 or 3- year terms. Most of the work of the Committee is done in panels to deal with specific standards of practice or professional ethics recommendations. A person may be appointed to the PPS committee for up to six consecutive years.

Comm​​itment

The total number of panel meetings a member will attend may vary. PPS committee members should be prepared to commit to attend at least one regularly scheduled meeting every 2-3 month(s) plus an annual orientation. The PPS committee generally meet via teleconference. Meetings are on average 2 hours long, with an estimated 1 hour of preparation time per meeting.​
