Education program review

Substantial changes to education​ programs​

BCCNM-recognized education programs considering a change to a recognized nursing or midwifery education program should review Section 7.0 of the education program review policies​. The educational institution is responsible for notifying BCCNM of any proposed change using the Substantial Change Consultation Form​​ and is expected to obtain board recognition for the change prior to implementing the change. If an educational institution makes a substantial change before it is reviewed by BCCNM and recognized by the board, the educational institution cannot assume that the graduates of the program will be eligible for registration with BCCNM.​
