OSRP/CRPO Committee: Stakeholders Meeting Report

Tue, June 28, 2022 4:28 PM | Evonne Brant (Administrator)


On Wednesday, June 1, the CRPO hosted a Stakeholders meeting for representatives from the cooperative relationships they have been building with the OSRP, CCPA, OAMHP, CAPT and OEATA.

Summary of meeting:

CRPO acknowledged that through the outlook of the nursing and midwifery profession, that quality of care and protection of the public involves a partnership, ongoing relationships and healthy tension between the Regulator, the Educators and the Associations in order to provide care in the best interests of clients.

  • CRPO has now surpassed 10,000 registrants (10,035 at the time of the meeting).  This is a 41% increase in overall applications and demonstrates the accelerated growth of the profession.
  • CRPO application processing timelines should be reduced to 4-6 weeks (recognized programs) or 4 months (non-recognized programs) by the end of June.
  • Ninety percent pass rate for the Entry to Practice exam (90% in ON, 91% in other provinces, 86% USA and 72% International).
  • They are currently reviewing the Clinical Supervision criteria and reduced group maximums from 12 to 8 participants as of April 2022.
  • Standards of Practice should be reviewed every five years and the Standard Review Policy may be extended to association leaders to contribute and become more involved.
  • Jurisprudence will be reviewed and updated, as it has not been since 2013 and laws, knowledge and experience have grown since the program launch.
  • Breakdown of Complaints detailed in the presentation slides, with General Conduct representing almost 42%.
  • Governance Reform Proposal: The CRPO is aiming for a 50:50 split between the Public and RP members (currently 49:51).  Term limits may be introduced and the removal of the previously considered RMHP title may be removed.
  • CRPO will continue to work remotely, with Council meetings potentially becoming hybrid starting in the fall. The exam will continue to be offered remotely.
