  • Bill to amend the Health Professions Act receives Royal Assent

    November 6, 2017

    Paves the way for the creation of a single nursing regulator for B.C.

    B.C.’s three nursing colleges are pleased to report that Bill 10, the Health Professions Amendment Act, received royal assent on Nov. 2 in the B.C legislature and is now law.

    This momentous event clears the way for B.C.’s three nursing colleges—the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of B.C. (CLPNBC), the College of Registered Nurses of B.C. (CRNBC) and the College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of B.C. (CRPNBC)—to begin the formal legal process of co-creating a new nursing regulator for the province.
