We're always accepting applications. To complement our existing members, more nurses, midwives and members of the public are needed.
Education Program Review (EPR) Committee assesses BC nursing and midwifery education programs and courses against the BCCNM Education Standards and Indicators and makes recommendations to BCCNM’s board for consideration in recognizing a nursing or midwifery education program.
EPR Committee members are a combination of midwife registrants, nurse registrants, and members of the public as required by BCCNM bylaws. Appointment terms are one, two, or three years. Most of the committee’s work takes place in panels of three to six committee members. A person can serve on the EPR Committee for up to six consecutive years.
The number of meetings a committee member attends in a year varies; however, members should be prepared to commit to a minimum of four to six regularly scheduled meetings per year. Committee members are polled for their availability. Meetings are currently four hours in length and are conducted virtually. Preparation time for each meeting is usually the same as the scheduled time for a meeting.
The document below includes information about the professional or academic skills that committee members may need, as well as other elements relevant to the work, such as personal values, lived experience, varied backgrounds, perspectives, and knowledge.
