One way that the CRPNM protects the public is by addressing complaints that are brought against Registered Psychiatric Nurses (RPNs), Graduate Psychiatric Nurses or former Registered Psychiatric Nurses.*
Complaints can be made by employers, other RPNs, or members of the public.
The CRPNM takes complaints seriously. The Registrar reviews all complaints and employer reports to determine if they should be referred to the College’s Complaints Investigation Committee.
The public interest and the protection of the public is always our first priority.
*A complaint may be made about a former registrant, but only if the complaint is made within five years after the cancellation of the registration or certificate of practice. The complaint must relate to conduct that occurred prior to the cancellation.
