The College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of Alberta (CRPNA), the College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of British Columbia (CRPNBC), the College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of Manitoba (CRPNM) and the Registered Psychiatric Nurses Association of Saskatchewan (RPNAS) are seeking a consultant to review and update the existing Standards of Psychiatric Nursing Practice.
The Standards of Psychiatric Nursing Practice describe, in broad terms, the expected level of performance of all RPNs. The standards provide a guide to the knowledge, skills, values, judgment, and attitudes that are needed to support competent, safe, and ethical psychiatric nursing practice. The purpose of the review is to ensure the document remains relevant and is reflective of current psychiatric nursing practice.
Consultants who respond to the RFP will be knowledgeable about psychiatric nursing practice and the regulation of health professionals in Canada. They will also have excellent communication skills, and experience in policy development, project management, stakeholder engagement, facilitating consultations and data collection, data analysis surveys, report writing and public presentation.
