BCCNM board approves new Indigenous cultural safety and humility practice standard

Jan 28, 2022

​The BCCNM board on Jan. 27, 2022, approved a new practice standard for all nurses and midwives, Indigenous cultural safety, cultural humility, and anti-racism. This new standard will take effect Feb. 25, 2022.

This standard was developed in collaboration with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia (CPSBC). BCCNM is also collaborating with CPSBC on learning resources to support practitioners as this standard comes into effect.

BCCNM is planning to mark the launch of the standard with a ceremony and other activities. We'll be sharing more information over the coming days and weeks.

​Nurses and midwives can also access resources in the learning sections of the website:
