ARNPEI Standards of Practice for Nurse Practitioners

Nurse Practitioner is a Registered Nurse who has graduated from a recognized NP program and has received an endorsement to practice as a NP on Prince Edward Island. Only nurses who are endorsed to practice as a NP can use the designation “Nurse Practitioner”. NPs practice in a variety of settings including community, acute care and long term care.

In accordance with the Registered Nurses Act, a NP on PEI has the legislated authority to:
(i) diagnose or assess a disease, disorder or condition, and communicate the diagnosis or assessment to the client,
(ii) order and interpret screening and diagnostic tests,
(iii) select, prescribe and monitor the effectiveness of drugs, and
(iv) order the application of forms of energy.

The Standards of Practice for Nurse Practitioners establish the minimum professional practice performance standards that the public can expect from the RN with a NP endorsement. This document is not a stand-alone document and should be used as a companion to the Registered Nurses Act, Nurse Practitioner Regulations and Core Competencies for Nurse Practitioners.
