New Regulations for BC Nurses!
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.
