Low, Diana, RN

Consent agreement

Dec 15, 2021

BCCNM and Diana Low of Surrey, to remediate practice issues that occurred from September 2019 to October 2019 related to her conduct as a nursing instructor. While working with students in a public health clinical area, the Registrant did not convey course requirements in a clear and cogent manner, was poorly organized, emailed students outside of agreed upon hours, and communicated inappropriately with students. A Code White occurred in the clinical environment near the end of the clinical day and the Registrant allowed the students to leave the clinical environment rather than wait for the situation to resolve.  After students made a complaint to Langara College about the Registrant's teaching skills and conduct, the Registrant wrote subjective or negative evaluations of the students and reported to Langara faculty that the students were behaving badly. The Registrant was resistant to feedback and/or coaching to improve her teaching skills. The Registrant subsequently filed a complaint with the BCCNM about one of the students for making a complaint to Langara College about the Registrant's teaching skills and conduct in the clinical environment.

The Registrant has voluntarily agreed th​​at regardless of practice area, the Registrant must complete education on ethics and professionalism and communication/conflict resolution and attend a one-on-one coaching session designed to reflect on communication, awareness, and sensitivity. If the Registrant wishes to work as a nursing instructor, she must first review and report on the characteristics of Adult Learners, then enter into a six-month period of supervision during instruction.​

The Inquiry Committee is satisfied that the terms will protect the public.
