 Welcome to the BCCNM QA program

As part of our mandate to protect the public through the regulation of nurses, BCCNM is required to maintain a quality assurance program. The purpose of the QA program is to promote high practice standards as part of ensuring clients continually receive competent and ethical care, and to support nurses to engage in annual professional development.

Nurses are autonomous professionals, with broad scope and significant professional responsibility. This means they must be lifelong learners, who continually assess and improve their practice.

By participating in BCCNM's Quality Assurance Program throughout the year, nurses demonstrate to the public they are committed to maintaining their competence to practise and that they take their professional development obligation seriously. Meeting QA requirements is an important way to maintain the public's trust in nurses.

Help & support

The BCCNM QA team is available to assist nurses with all aspects of quality assurance. They can support nurses in their self-assessment, help set professional development goals, and review feedback from colleagues—they are a resource for all nurses participating in BCCNM's QA program. The QA team is available via email, as well as by phone.
