Unshakeable confidence in nursing and midwifery care


Keegan's story: lessons & learnings

We are pleased to share Remembering Keegan: a BC First Nations Case Study Reflection, released publicly and gifted in ceremony on Feb. 21, 2022. Keegan Combes of Skwah First Nation was a high school graduate, a grade-10 pianist, and a chess champion, who was enrolled in a trades college at the time of his death from accidental poisoning.

The case study reflection is the first of its kind shared by B.C. First Nations and is intended to help shape the quality of care for all Indigenous people in B.C. and across the country, and to prevent this from happening to anyone else.

Virtual care

Danny is a nurse in a community mental health unit that offers in-person and virtual (phone or video) appointments for clients. Joe has been a client at the clinic for about two years and has a well-established relationship with Danny and his mental health team. Joe has access to the technology needed to participate in a virtual health encounter.

Is virtual care appropriate?



Medical aesthetics

BCCNM has revised the scope of practice limits and conditions for nurses practising in the area of medical aesthetics. If you are a nurse who provides medical aesthetics to clients, you'll want to check out this new section of the website. On this page, we clarify key regulatory terms and concepts as well as share FAQs related to medical aesthetics.

We acknowledge the rights and title of the First Nations on whose collective unceded territories encompass the land base colonially known as British Columbia. We give specific thanks to the hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ speaking peoples the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) and sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations and the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh-ulh Sníchim speaking Peoples the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation), on whose unceded territories BCCNM’s office is located. We also give thanks for the medicines of these territories and recognize that laws, governance, and health systems tied to these lands and waters have existed here for over 9000 years.

We also acknowledge the unique and distinct rights, including rights to health and wellness, of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples from elsewhere in Canada who now live in British Columbia. As leaders in the settler health system, we acknowledge our responsibilities to these rights under international, national, and provincial law.​
