We acknowledge that Manitoba is on the original lands of the Dakota, Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, Dené, Inuit and Métis Nation. We acknowledge that the College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of Manitoba is located on Treaty One territory. We respect the Treaties that were made on these territories, and we acknowledge the harms and mistakes of the past. We dedicate ourselves to moving forward in partnership with First Nations, Métis, and Inuit communities in a spirit of reconciliation and collaboration.

The purpose of this tri-nursing college document is to help nurses and their employers understand nurses’ professional and legal responsibilities related to the duty to provide care. This document is also intended to describe factors that contribute to, and impact on a nurse’s ability to meet their duty to provide care.

Professional nursing practice standards, practice directions, and codes of ethics, all of which establish practice expectations for each of the three nursing professions in Manitoba, underpin the guidance provided within this document.
