Nurse Practitioner Examination

The Nurse Practitioner Examination Committee (NPEC) provides oversight for the development of the Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) and scores the OSCE, which is a requirement for registration as a practising nurse practitioner in B.C.


NPEC membership includes seven nurse practitioner registrants, two registrants of a non-nursing HPA-regulated profession who have an OSCE as a registration requirement, and one member of the public. Appointment terms are one, two, or three years. A person can serve on the NPEC for up to six consecutive years.


This committee meets approximately two to four times a year for full-day or half-day meetings. NPEC members should be prepared to attend all regularly scheduled meetings in addition to an annual orientation.
