Effective May 15, 2023, the Midwifery Regulatory Council of Nova Scotia will lease office space from the Nova Scotia College of Nursing (NSCN), which is the regulatory body for Nova Scotia’s 16,000 licensed practical nurses, registered nurses and nurse practitioners.
We are excited to share office space with our regulatory colleagues, however the Council will continue to operate autonomously from all aspects of NSCN with our own independent board, staff and networks.
We are grateful to the NSCN for making us feel so welcome in their office space.
The new Council office will be located at:
Suite 300 – 120 Western Parkway�Bedford, NS B4B 0V2
