Unshakeable confidence in nursing and midwifery care
BCCNM's 2022 Annual Report
BCCNM is pleased to release its 2022 Annual Report.
Revised IUC framework for midwives
We revised the Framework for Midwife Certification in Intrauterine Contraception. As a result, there are new limits and conditions as well as changes to midwife Quality Assurance and certification requirements. These changes take effect May 18, 2023.
Celebrating International Day of the Midwife
As experts in pregnancy, birth, and postpartum care, midwives support expectant parents and babies with skill and dedication. May 5, 2023 is a day to recognize the essential role you play in nurturing healthy families.
Through the delivery of evidence-based, client-centered maternity and newborn care, your efforts make a difference in the lives of so many British Columbians. Thank you.
Be sure to enrol in PRIME to maintain PharmaNet access
Midwives who access PharmaNet to provide patient care should now be enrolled in PRIME. If you have not yet enrolled, please enrol now to maintain your PharmaNet access; it may be removed without a PRIME approval.
Sharing the results of BCCNM's complaints process review
We are pleased to release the final report, which has recommendations for three broad areas: process changes, establishing relationships, and mandatory learning.
Cultural safety & humility video series
To help nurses and midwives understand and apply the Indigenous Cultural Safety, Cultural Humility and Anti-Racism practice standard, BCCNM collaborated with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC on a series of videos. This month, we're highlighting the video on creating safe health-care experiences.
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.
past Hearing Decisions
BCCNM's office will be closed on Monday, May 22 for Victoria Day. We will reopen at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, May 23.
