Review the revised NP ELCs (not yet in effect)
The Canadian Council of Registered Nurse Regulators (CCRNR) first published Entry-Level Competencies (ELCs) for Nurse Practitioners in Canada in 2016. The process to update the ELCs, which are the basis for the BCCNM Entry-Level Competencies for Nurse Practitioners was led by CCRNR. The competencies are revised periodically to reflect evolving population needs, health system, and NP practice.
