Self-Employed Practice Guidelines for Nurses

Consultation Type:

Consultation Overview

NSCN is seeking feedback on a newly developed Practice Support Tool (PST) Self-Employed Practice Guidelines for Nurses. 

Nurses in self-employed practice provide professional nursing services to clients in a variety of practice settings. Services may be provided independently or in collaboration with other practitioners. Self-employed nurses may also employ other health care providers. 

This tool is designed to be a resource for nurses who are interested in self-employed nursing practice to help them understand:

  • Self-employed practice 
  • Informed consent
  • Policy and procedures 
  • Conflict of interest 
  • Advertising and endorsing products
  • Liability coverage
  • Designations and credentials

A link has been provided to the draft document, it should take you approximately 10 minutes to review. After reviewing the document please complete the following online survey. 

Background on Consultation

NSCN is seeking feedback on this PST for nurses working in self-employed practice. Both legacy Colleges had self-employed practice guidelines, which were reviewed in the development of this guideline. We are seeking feedback to ensure that the final document will be useful and relevant for nurses working or considering working in self-employed practice. In addition, we want to ensure the document is applicable to all categories of nurses.

Consultation Next Steps

Feedback will be reviewed and incorporated into the document as appropriate.
