Autonomous scope of practice and client-specific orders

Scope of P​​ractice Standards establish the standards, limits and conditions for registered psychiatric nurses' practice. These scope of practice standards link to other stand​ards, policies, and bylaws of BCCNM and all legislation relevant to nursing practice.

For the purposes of t​hese scope of practice standards, the “RPN Regulation" refers to the Nurses Psychiatric Regulation which applies to all registered psychiatric nurses in British Columbia.

Organizations establish processes, supports, and resources such as policies, procedures and decision support tools to ensure that nurses meet the standards of practice set out by BCCNM.​
