Each year, nurses must:
Evaluate the impact of their learning on their practice
To prepare for registration renewal, we recommend nurses review the professional standards for their designation and the self-assessment questionnaire relevant to their practice.
Nurses answer these self-assessment questions on the registration renewal form, but many nurses find it helpful to review the questions in advance, so they have time to reflect on their practice and where they'd like to focus their professional development for next year. To meet their annual quality assurance requirements, nurses should also seek peer feedback on their practice and developed and evaluated a professional development (PD) plan.
Once nurses have renewed their registration, they can begin their QA activities for the upcoming year. Using their self-assessment as a guide, they seek feedback from peers and colleagues to identify areas for improvement, and then create a professional development plan.
