Code of Ethics for Registered Nurses

In Nova Scotia, all RNs and NPs are accountable to practise nursing based on the 2017 Code of Ethics for Registered Nurses developed by the Canadian Nurses Association. The Code of Ethics is a resource to help you practise ethically and work through ethical challenges that arise in your practice setting with individuals, clients, families, communities, and the health system.

If you have any questions about the Code of Ethics for Registered Nurses, please reach out to us at practice@nscn.ca
