Graphic that reads College Trade Name Approved

In August 2020, CARNA Council voted to separate its dual mandates and become a single mandate regulator focused on serving and protecting the public. Significant work is underway to further this transition.  

At its March 2021 meeting, Council approved a new trade name for the College. The College will now be operating as the College of Registered Nurses of Alberta (CRNA) until we can legally change our name when the Health Professions Act is updated.  All legal agreements will remain under the name CARNA until the legal name change. 

The College is also beginning work to change its brand identity, along with the new trade name. Stay tuned for our new brand launch in Fall 2021! 


We want to answer your questions about the transition to a single mandate.  

We welcome questions from the public, registrants and stakeholders.
