Meeting your annual QA requirements

Nurses are lifelong learners. Participating in BCCNM's quality assurance (QA) program demonstrates you take professional development and continued competence in your practice seriously. During registration renewal, you’ll complete the annual self-assessment questionnaire. It’s a good idea to review the questions beforehand and identify which areas of your practice you’d like to work on in the coming year.

Indigenous cultural safety & cultural humility learning resources

BCCNM has extensive learning resources available to nurses. This month we’re highlighting our Indigenous cultural safety and cultural humility section. Here you’ll find courses, articles, videos, and more to support your learning journey. These resources are also helpful when doing your PD planning for the coming year.


RPNs are now regulated in N.W.T. and NU

Amendments to the nursing acts include provisions for the regulation of RPNs in the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. RPNs must be registered with the College and Association of Nurses of the Northwest Territories and Nunavut to practice in these territories. Effective Jan. 1, 2024.


Did you know? NP regulation in Canada is changing

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.
