As per The Regulated Health Professions Act, the CRPNM Council is consulting with members of the College on proposed amendments to the College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of Manitoba General Regulation  (the “General Regulation”).  

The proposed amendments to section 3.4 would authorize Registered Psychiatric Nurses (RPNs) to administer drugs to treat uncomplicated chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis.   This is currently authorized by a Public Health Order that will expire on May 31, 2024. 

The proposed amendments also include the repeal of subsection 2.7(2) and minor corrections to some of the language in the regulation.

Comments will be accepted from May 8 to May 22, 2024, and should be submitted to the Council of the College at crpnm@crpnm.mb.ca.

The Council will review and consider all comments received.
