Under the Health Professions Act, “delegation" means delegating to a non-registrant the provision or performance of an aspect of practice. Delegation to a regulated health professional occurs when an ​​activity is within the scope of the delegating profession and outside the scope of the other profession. Delegation must be authorized within the bylaws of both regulatory bodies. It does not refer to giving client-specific orders, direction, supervision or assignment.

At this time, no activities have been approved for delegation by another regulated health professional to RPNs.

Registrants who have questions about delegation should contact BCCNM.​
