The health, safety and peace of mind of our employees, regulated members, and Complaint Review Committee/Hearing Tribunal committee members is a priority for the College and Association of Registered Nurses of Alberta (CARNA).
CARNA has taken precautionary steps to lessen the health risk associated with COVID-19, including establishing strategies to maintain critical business processes and operations during this pandemic. As such, CARNA is following the guidelines set out by the Chief Medical Officer of Alberta. CARNA has transitioned its staff to remote working, and the Edmonton office is closed to walk-in visitors without appointments as part of ‘physical distancing’.
The Professional Conduct department is continuing its essential business processes and operations; however, there are changes to how we will be conducting our professional conduct operations as outlined below:
Written communication with regulated members and complainants
Contacting professional conduct employees
Decisions on completed investigations
Conditions on permits
Extensions to complete requirements or sanctions
