Three Canadian nursing associations are encouraging healthcare facilities to utilize their resource “Staff Mix Decision-making Framework for Quality Nursing Care” to create the best, safe staff mix for all clinical practice settings.
A joint position statement supporting the framework was recently released by the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA), the Canadian Council for Practical Nurse Regulators (CCPNR) and the Registered Psychiatric Nurses of Canada (RPNC).

“The framework, developed with funding from the government of Canada’s Foreign Credential Recognition Program, is based on a focused literature review and a broad consultation that included surveys and focus groups. It contains a model that illustrates the complexity of the decision-making process and guides staff mix decision-making with questions related to each phase of the nursing process (assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation).”
Questions regarding implementation of the framework may be directed to the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta (CLPNA) at firstname.lastname@example.org or 780-484-8886.
The CLPNA is a member of the the Canadian Council for Practical Nurse Regulators (CCPNR).
