Midwives are lifelong learners, who are ultimately accountable and responsible for sustaining and enhancing their own knowledge, skills, judgement and competencies over a lifetime of practice.

Did you know? NP regulation in Canada is changing

The role and practice of nurse practitioners has evolved since the profession started being regulated in the 1990s. The Nurse Practitioner Regulation Framework Implementation Plan Project is an initiative led by the Canadian Council of Registered Nurse Regulators to improve labour mobility, increase consistency, and enable the right level of regulation of NPs nationally.



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.
