About​​ hearings

Discipline hearin​​​​g and outcomes

A discipline hearing is usually a public process in which witness testimony and documented evidence are evaluated by the Discipline Committee. Similar to the Inquiry Committee, the Discipline Committee is an independent decision-making body made up of nurses and the public. Unlike the Inquiry Committee, the Discipline Committee is authorized to make factual findings about the nurse's conduct, competence or health, and impose an appropriate outcome. Outcomes from a disciplinary hearing can range from no further action being taken to suspension or cancellation of registration. Suspension and cancellation of registration is reserved for significant competence and conduct issues.

Discipline Committee decisions are subject to review by the British Columbia Supreme Court.​
