This study was commissioned by the Federal/Provincial/Territorial Advisory Committee on Health Human Resources (ACHHR) to develop baseline data on the supply and education of Registered Nurses (RNs), Registered Psychiatric Nurses (RPNs), and Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs), and on employer practices pertaining to the deployment of all patient care providers. The study results are published in five separate volumes. Volume III of the study "An Inventory of Nursing Program Enrolments and Graduates in Canada by Province/Territory, 1998" describes the production of nursing personnel in Canada. A survey questionnaire was sent to provincial/territorial representatives (usually the education representative) of the ACHHR who were asked to complete the survey for all nursing education programs in their jurisdictions. The questionnaire requested information as to the type of credential offered, the length of the program, the number enrolled in each year of the program, the number of students enrolled full-time, part-time, or in distance education, and the number of graduates in 1997 and 1998. The analysis includes the impact of BN-only basic education for RNs.
