Professional Practice Orientation Resources

Evidence-based guidance and resources for regulated health care professionals who are newly hired to Nova Scotia Health


According to both Nova Scotia Health and our regulatory bodies, we are expected to complete documentation as part of our practice. Nova Scotia Health supports and encourages the use of several policies and tools in our daily practice. Some processes are standardized provincially, while some are only applicable in individual zones.

The resources listed below are a broad starting point from across the province. There are many other processes (policies and procedures) within each zone which you may be informed to follow.
