Unshakeable confidence in nursing and midwifery care
What's new for renewal
The registration renewal period begins Feb. 1, 2022. Read on to find out what you need to know for renewal this year.
NEW CASE STUDY
Concerns about practice
Celia, the head of the midwifery department, has concerns about some of Sara's competencies as a midwife. During a recent hospital delivery, Sara appeared not to understand the basic principles of fetal health surveillance and was unable to recognize signs of fetal distress.
Derek, the perinatal nurse who reported the situation to Celia, told Celia that Sara had difficulty making life saving decisions and required direction during the neonatal resuscitation. Based on the reported concerns and the risk to public safety, the hospital restricts Sara's privileges and files a complaint with BCCNM.
Cultural safety & humility
BCCNM and the College of Physicians and Surgeons of B.C. have been collaborating on a new standard, Indigenous Cultural Safety, Cultural Humility and Anti-Racism.
As part of helping registrants prepare for this new standard, we've put together a preliminary list of learning resources, and we'll be adding to this list over the coming weeks and months.

Inquiry, Discipline, and Monitoring updates
BCCNM publishes a variety of professional conduct notices on its website. These notices include consent agreements, Discipline Committee and Inquiry Committee notices, and Inquiry and Discipline hearing notices. While all of these notices are public information, only exceptional outcomes (i.e., Inquiry Committee order, Discipline order, hearing outcome) and circumstances (i.e., discipline hearing) are highlighted in registrant newsletters.
