Complaints & Discipline
CRPNBC has a duty to protect the public from incompetent, impaired or unethical psychiatric nursing practice.
Most Registered Psychiatric Nurses (RPNs) are competent, skilled professionals who work hard to maintain their clients’ confidence. However, there are times when there may be concerns about their behavior or the care they have provided. Patients, families, employers, colleagues or other members of the public may bring such concerns to the attention of CRPNBC, which may investigate complaints and take disciplinary action.
