Unshakeable confidence in nursing and midwifery care
On May 11, 2021, BCCNM, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC, the College of Pharmacists of BC, and the College of Dental Surgeons of BC issued an apology to the Indigenous People and communities who have experienced racism while engaging with these health regulatory colleges and with the health professionals they regulate. As part of this apology, the colleges made a commitment to take specific actions. Read on to see our progress.
Practice resource: Volunteering as a nurse

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.
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.
