Regulatory Update: COVID-19 Vaccine

Immunizations have a significant and positive impact on the health of our population. Widespread vaccination shortens the duration of disease outbreaks, maintains public safety, reduces the burden on the health care system and keeps health care providers safe to care for clients in need.

The Nova Scotia College of Nursing (NSCN) recommends that nurses be vaccinated against COVID-19 and encourages nurses to use current science-based sources and their knowledge, ethical frameworks as the foundation for their decision. NSCN also recommends that any decision to require nurses to be vaccinated should be made by nurses and employers in consideration of the practice context.
