Three nursing colleges joining to co-create new regulator
The College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of B.C. (CRPNBC), the College of Registered Nurses of B.C. (CRNBC) and the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of B.C. (CLPNBC) are excited to announce we are all working toward forming a common regulatory body to replace our existing organizations.
A report, completed by Western Management Consultants (WMC) earlier this year, confirms a number of benefits of forming a single nursing college. This business case was commissioned by our boards to explore the advantages, risks and benefits of forming a single regulatory body.
In the coming months, CRPNBC, CRNBC and CLPNBC will be launching a consultation process to get feedback from the nursing community and other stakeholders.
