The CRPNBC Board of Directors has approved the recently released national document, Registered Psychiatric Nurse Entry-Level Competencies, for use in British Columbia effective December 1, 2014.  Click here for the BC version of this document, which will guide curriculum development in BC and the assessment of international psychiatric nursing education programs.  It is also anticipated that the document will increase public and employer awareness of the practice expectations of entry-level RPNs, and will help to provide role clarity.
