Feedback required: NP Entry-Level Competencies survey

As a component of the national Nurse Practitioner Regulation Framework Implementation Project, the Canadian Council of Registered Nurse Regulators is leading the work nationally to update the Nurse Practitioner Entry-Level Competencies (ELCs). On Monday, June 20, all NPs will be invited to complete a survey to provide feedback on the revised document. The ELCs are foundational for guiding NP program curriculums, clarifying expectations for entry level practice, and assessing competency of NPs. Your feedback is important; we strongly encourage you to complete the survey.

Read the CCRNR project newsletter for more information about the ELCs consultation, or visit the project page on the BCCNM website.

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.



Office closed

BCCNM's office will be closed on Friday, July 1 for Canada Day. We will reopen at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, July 4.

Due to COVID-19, our office is currently closed to walk-in traffic.
