Volunteer Opportunities

Involvement from the profession sits at the heart of self-regulation and what we do here at NSCN. Through self-regulation, our registrants possess a specialized body of knowledge that places them in the best position to govern their profession when combined with public input from public representatives and others. 

We are always seeking professional, competent and passionate individuals to contribute to our work and to the direction and vision of nursing regulation in Nova Scotia.
