2024 Continuing Competence Program (CCP) Audit

NSCN’s Continuing Competence Program (CCP) Audit will return in February 2024.

The CCP is a regulatory program and quality assurance mechanism to guide nurses in facilitating their continuing competence. Every nurse in Nova Scotia is required to complete the CCP requirements as part of their annual licensure, regardless of their employment status. The CCP provides a level of assurance to the public that nurses are continuously meeting their professional practice standards, which helps contribute to our mandate of public protection.

As part of the CCP all nurses are required to complete a self-assessment, develop a professional growth plan, reflect on their plan and participate in the audit process if selected.

NSCN will notify all registrants on Friday, February 16, 2024, if they have been selected to participate in the audit process. Those randomly selected nurses will have 60 days to participate in the audit process.

Resources and tools will be available to help you meet these CCP requirements.

Learn more about CCP here.
