Quality Assurance


The Quality Assurance (QA) Committee is responsible for administering a registrant-facing QA program that ensures the safe, ethical, and competent practice of all registrants. As the integration of nursing and midwifery QA program components continues, the QA committee is instrumental in supporting QA program development, as well as making decisions on the professional performance of nurses and midwives.

Overv​​iew

QA committee members are a combination of midwife registrants, nurse registrants, and members of the public. Appointment terms are one, two, or three years. A person can serve on the QA committee for up to six consecutive years.

Comm​​itment

The total number of meetings a member attends in a year varies. Committee members should be prepared to commit to attending six meetings per year in addition to an annual orientation. To facilitate scheduling, members are regularly polled for their availability. Meetings are held in-person or by teleconference and range from two to three hours in length, with an estimated preparation time of one to two hours per meeting.
