There are four levels of controls on nurse practitioners’ practice:

The Regulation, which sets out the scope of practice in fairly broad strokes.

BCCNM standards, limits and conditions, which complement and further define and limit the scope of practice set out in the Regulation.

Organizational or employer policies that may restrict the practice of nurse practitioners in a particular agency or unit.

An individual nurse practitioner’s competence to carry out a particular activity.
