B.C. NP graduates are eligible to apply for
provisional NP registration, which enables you to work as an NP (with
conditions) in B.C. prior to passing the written exam and OSCE. This
provisional NP registration is granted for a specific employer. If you decide
to switch NP employers or wish to add a second employer an updated application
for provisional NP registration is required.
As a provisional NP, you are not eligible to independently prescribe medications nor order diagnostic tests. Your practice must be monitored by a B.C.-registered NP or Physician. Learn more a bout provisional registration conditions and monitoring requirements.
If you are not currently registered as an RN with BCCNM,
you will need to apply. Your RN and NP application can be submitted at the same time.
