  • Draft bylaws for new nursing college: available for review

    May 16, 2018

    We are pleased to report that the draft bylaws for the new nursing college are available for review.

    The college bylaws provide the foundation for sound and effective decision-making, and will be a guiding document as our new college comes into existence.

    Before these new bylaws can come into effect, we are required to give notice to registrants and the public, and post them for three months. This gives key stakeholders an opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback, and is a key phase in the drafting process. Feedback from registrants is especially useful as it provides insight into how the bylaws will be interpreted, and whether further clarification is needed.

    We value and appreciate your feedback, and hope you will take part in the consultation process.

    The Minister of Health on May 8, 2018, formally approved the name of B.C.’s new nursing regulator. The BC College of Nursing Professionals will come into existence on Sept. 4, 2018.

    This new college will amalgamate the three existing nursing colleges—the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of BC, the College of Registered Nurses of BC, and the College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of BC—into a single regulator for all nurses in the province.

    The staff, boards and leadership at the three colleges appreciate the Minister’s attention to this project and look forward to continued collaboration as we work towards Day 1 of our new organization.
