  • Meningococcal Outbreak – Interior Health

    In response to an outbreak of meningococcal disease, CRPNBC has temporarily modified the CRPNBC Scope of Practice for RPNs: Standards, Limits and Conditions to permit RPNs employed by Interior Health to administer vaccines in specific circumstances for the duration of the outbreak.

  • The Benefits of a Single Nursing Regulator for BC Nurses

    December 5, 2017

    The College of Licensed Practical Nurses of B.C. (CLPNBC), the College of Registered Nurses of B.C. (CRNBC) and College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of B.C. (CRPNBC) are working with government to co-create a new nursing body that will replace our existing colleges.

    Currently, having three colleges means nurses in B.C. may be subject to different regulatory requirements, including quality assurance, registration and standards of practice. A new college will be able to make the regulatory process simpler by setting consistent standards for nurses across the province while respecting the differences between nursing disciplines.

    The creation of a single nursing regulator also strengthens our three colleges’ commitment to accessibility, and ensures that nursing regulation in British Columbia is collaborative and cohesive, and supports nurses to deliver the best care possible.

  • Issues with email notifications

    October 27, 2017

    We are currently doing some work on our database system, which may affect the email notifications applicants and registrants receive from CRPNBC when they:

     

    • submit applications
    • make changes in My Record, and
    • submit their annual Continuing Competence Review form

    Delivery of these emails may be delayed, may be routed to junk mail folders, or may not arrive at all. We are working to resolve this issue. We apologize for this inconvenience, and thank you for your patience.
