Nurse Practice Officers

SUN has a dedicated team of Nurse Practice Officers (NPOs) who are accessible to members to assist in answering professional practice questions and providing guidance in addressing your practice concerns. 

Using a team-based approach to addressing labour relations and professional practice issues, the NPOs team up with our Employment Relations Officers resulting a shared knowledge-base to better meet the professional needs of our members.

There is great deal of research and evidence available to support and address member concerns, and by also applying a labor relations lens on nursing advisory issues we can increase the number of successful outcomes and maximize efficiencies in the Nursing Advisory process.

To ensure the needs of our membership are being met in a effective and efficient manner, NPOs are assigned to specific regions of the province. Click here to view the current NPO assignments.
