The Registered Psychiatric Nurses Act sets out, in law, the responsibilities of employers to ensure registration and report misconduct to the College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of Manitoba.
Employers must ensure that any psychiatric nurse they employ are registered and entitled to practice as a Registered Psychiatric Nurse (RPN) or Graduate Psychiatric Nurse.
If an employer suspends or terminates the employment of a Registered Psychiatric Nurse or Graduate Psychiatric Nurse for alleged professional incompetence or professional misconduct, the employer must promptly report the suspension or termination to the CRPNM Executive Director in writing*.
* The CRPNM must review all written complaints made against its members.
Employing agencies can confirm the registration and renewal status of Registered Psychiatric Nurses or Graduate Psychiatric Nurses.
This tool is provided to help members of the public identify whether a person providing services as a registered psychiatric nurse or graduate psychiatric nurse is registered with the CRPNM.
