Nursing holds the privilege of being a self-regulating profession under the authority of Regulated Health Professions Act (2013). CRNMPEI is the regulatory body for registered nurses and nurse practitioners within PEI that upholds the Act and its associated regulations in a manner that serves and protects the public interest. Mandated by the Act, CRNMPEI is required to establish committees supported by volunteer members to guide the profession of nursing in our jurisdiction.

There are 4 types of committees that operate under the College mandate:

  • Council: Council of the College and Executive Committee
  • Discipline Committees: Investigation Committees and Hearing Committees
  • NP Advisory Committee
  • Student Liaison Committee

If you would like to be a part of the work being done and contribute to your profession at CRNMPEI, please contact Melissa Panton at 902-368-3765 or

Council positions are filled by nomination (RN members) or appointment by government (public representatives). Committee positions are filled as vacancies arise. When there is a vacancy, the list of interested members is reviewed.

CRNMPEI makes every attempt to ensure committees represent our membership; therefore, the goal is for committees to have nurses with a variety of years of experience, from different practice settings, and from different regions.
