Promoting excellence and advocacy for Family Practice Nursing in Nova Scotia
Welcome to the FPNANS Website

In June 2007, a group of dedicated Family Practice Nurses across Nova Scotia came together to formalize the existing interest group into an established association. We recognize that the majority of Family Practice Nurses work in isolation and have limited opportunities and resources to support their practice needs.

Our mission is to advance Family Practice Nursing in Nova Scotia through collaborative networks and support systems and by promoting our vision and standard of care.

Registered Nurses and Licensed Practical Nurses working in the family practice setting are an asset to our primary care system and deserve support. FPNANS Membership benefits include networking forums, education opportunities and a united voice for Family Practice Nurse initiatives. Let's work together to get there!

This website has been brought to you by a generous donation from
the Family Practice Nurse Professional Council through the
Improving Nursing Practice Grant, Capital Health, Nova Scotia and
Family Practice Nurses Association of Nova Scotia.
