Becoming One Nursing Regulator
The College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of B.C. (CRPNBC), the College of Registered Nurses of B.C. (CRNBC) and the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of B.C. (CLPNBC) are excited to announce we are working to co-create a new nursing body that will replace our existing colleges. This new body will regulate all nurses in B.C.: LPNs, NPs, RNs and RPNs.
A report, completed by Western Management Consultants in 2016, confirms a number of benefits of forming a single nursing college. We are committed to keeping nurses, staff and the public updated as these discussions progress.
