About NPAM

Nurse practitioners are unique health care providers given they are registered nurses with graduate education who have the legislated authority to autonomously complete comprehensive assessments, order, conduct and interpret diagnostic tests, diagnose health conditions, prescribe medications (including controlled drugs and substances), arrange referrals to specialists (when applicable), provide treatments (e.g. medications & minor procedures), manage chronic disease, screen for early disease detection, offer healthy lifestyle coaching, and advocate for socioeconomic resources.

NPAM endeavors to promote accessible and effective healthcare by nurse practitioners to the public of Manitoba.  NPAM is the only nursing organization in Manitoba that is governed and employs active practicing NPs as a non-profit corporation that collaborates with NP students, employers, unions, legislators, regulators (College of Registered Nurses), the public, and post-secondary education institutes for advancing the NP role and ensuring safe quality patient care.
