On December 3, 2015, the government brought into effect revised nursing regulations for BC nurses – a much awaited and welcome event!  The new regulations define and clarify the scopes of practice and restricted activities for each nursing group, including RPNs.  Click here for a joint announcement from the three BC nursing regulators providing more information.

Although a new regulation for RPNs is now in effect, the existing RPN scope of practice continues until CRPNBC has communicated any changes.  This will be done initially in a Scope of Practice document that CRPNBC plans to publish in the new year after the end of January.
