Nursing in a Team Environment

The nursing Colleges in Manitoba frequently receive questions about how to best understand the roles of licensed practical nurses (LPN), registered nurses (RN) and registered psychiatric nurses (RPN) in a specific practice setting. With that in mind, the Colleges of Licensed Practical Nurses, Registered Nurses, and Registered Psychiatric Nurses of Manitoba set out to provide a common framework for this discussion through the consideration of several factors that underpin effective collaboration between health care professionals including the client.

In order to provide the information required to make decisions about how to best serve patient population needs we have moved past the individualist perspective into a collectivist view. This document is meant to build a foundation that allows for reflective questioning and consideration and helps to support collaborative approaches to quality care.
