May 30, 2024

BCCNM is honoured to receive the Regulatory Achievement Award from the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) for 2024. The award will be presented at NCSBN's annual awards ceremony in August.

This award recognizes the member board or associate member that has made an identifiable, significant contribution to the mission and vision of NCSBN in promoting public policy related to the safe and effective practice of nursing in the interest of public welfare.

BCCNM exists to ensure unshakeable confidence in nursing and midwifery care. We do this in service of our public protection mandate. This award reaffirms our focus and commitment to ensuring quality, ethical and safe care is made accessible to everyone in B.C.

Regulation is never done in isolation. Thank you to the NCSBN awards committee, our staff, partners, and communities for your unwavering support, contributions, and trust.

We acknowledge the rights and title of the First Nations on whose collective unceded territories encompass the land base colonially known as British Columbia. We give specific thanks to the hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ speaking peoples the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) and sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations and the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh-ulh Sníchim speaking Peoples the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation), on whose unceded territories BCCNM’s office is located. We also give thanks for the medicines of these territories and recognize that laws, governance, and health systems tied to these lands and waters have existed here for over 9000 years.

We also acknowledge the unique and distinct rights, including rights to health and wellness, of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples from elsewhere in Canada who now live in British Columbia. As leaders in the settler health system, we acknowledge our responsibilities to these rights under international, national, and provincial law.​
