Nursing legislation was retrieved from a variety of sources. Depending on the legal traditions operating within jurisdictions and the approach to documenting legislation, further material relating to the professional practice and /or education of the nurse was also obtained.
Where legislation was not provided or available from regulatory body web sites, information was sourced from NATLEX, a database of national labour, social security and related human rights legislation maintained by the International Labour Organisation. Records in NATLEX only provide abstracts of legislation and relevant citation information.
If you have any questions or information you wish to contribute to any of the databases, please contact us.
The readers should note that:
• The information posted on this ICN web site in relation to this database, was accurate at the time of collection
• Information on the contact information sheets and legislation may have been changed since it was accepted
• In some jurisdictions there may well be other additional relevant legislation and/or guidance which informs practice
• Further information should be obtained directly from the regulatory body.
