The Nurses Association of New Brunswick (NANB), the professional association of all New Brunswick nurses, was formed in 1916 with the passage of the Registered Nurses Act. By the Nurses Act of 1984, the 21-member board of directors of the NANB continues to be responsible for regulating the nursing profession in the province. The association has been referred to, on various occasions, as the New Brunswick Nurses Association and the New Brunswick Association of Registered Nurses. The NANB is a member of the Canadian Nurses Association, a national federation representing the nursing profession at the national and international levels. The president of the NANB is a voting member of the CNA board of directors. Through the CNA the NANB is represented on the International Council of Nurses and is involved in activities that influence the nursing profession throughout the world. In 2001 the Nurses Association of New Brunswick main office is located on Regent Street in Fredericton.
