Discipline and public notices


​​​​​The majority of complaints are resolved through a consensual resolution process. The process results in a formal, legal agreement between a registrant and BCCNM (approved by the Inquiry Committee). Each agreement outlines the action that the registrant has agreed to take to address the issue or issues identified during the investigation process.​​

*Please note: In the table below, "registrant type" does not confirm current status. Rather, it reflects the registrant's status at the time the notice was posted. For current registrant status, please visit https://registry.bccnm.ca/ to search for a nurse and https://registry.cmbc.bc.ca/​ to search for a midwife. There you can search the registrant by name and verify current licensure status.

​​​​When a registrant goes through the formal c​om​​plaint proces​​s, t​​​​​he complaint is resolved in one of two ways.

  1. Consensual complaint resolution: consent agreements
    The majority of complaints are resolved through a consensual complaint ​​resolution process. The process results in a formal, legal agreement between a registrant and BCCNM (approved by the Inquiry Committee). Each agreement outlines the action that the registrant has agreed to take to address the issue or issues identified during the investigation process. 

  2. Investigation, inquiry and discipline hearings
    When a solution cannot be negotiated using the CCR process, BCCNM’s Discipline Committee holds a formal hearing. Hearings are open to the public. Testimony is given u​​nder oath. The Discipline Committee decides if the allegations are substantiated and whether any disciplinary action is appropriate. Disciplinary action may involve a reprimand, conditions on registration, suspension or termination of registration. A nurse or midwife who is dissatisfied with the decision of the panel can appeal the decision.​

BCCNM publishes a variety of professional conduct notices. These notices include the criminal record review non-compliance; consent agreements; Discipl​ine Committee notices; Inquiry Committee notices and  Inquiry and Discipline hearing notices. ​​​​
