Administrative history

The Registered Nurses Association of Nova Scotia (RNANS) is a regulatory body governed by a volunteer board of directors responsible for establishing policies and goals in accordance with current legislation. The first meeting was held in 1909 and the association was incorporated in 1910. It holds as its mission the advancement of the profession: to develop better working conditions, prepare members for changing and increasingly specialized advancements, and standardize training. The establishment in 1909 of nursing examinations was a significant step towards the creation of provincial nursing standards.
