On June 6, 2022 a panel of the Inquiry Committee approved a Consent Agreement between BCCNM and Jacquelyn O'Brien of Dartmouth, N.S. to address practice issues that occurred between April 23, 2021 and September 15, 2021, related to the Registrant's failure to comply with the conditions placed on her BCCNM Provisional Nurse Practitioner license requiring oversight by a BC-regulated practitioner, and the use of a colleague's name and MSP number without permission to independently order diagnostic tests while holding provisional registration status.
The Registrant has voluntarily agreed to terms equivalent to a limit and/or condition on their practice, including:
A suspension of their nursing registration for 7 days;
To review the BCCNM regulatory framework for Provisional Nurse Practitioners and Nurse Practitioners and self-regulate to ensure full compliance with all regulations.
The Inquiry Committee is satisfied that the terms will protect the public.
