Three nursing colleges strike task group to explore shared office space, working together
On April 25, 2015, the Boards of the three nursing regulators (CLPNBC, CRNBC and CRPNBC) met to discuss our ongoing collaboration, and how to best consolidate our relationship for maximum benefits and impact.
Over the past three years, the relationship among our three organizations has strengthened and deepened, with staff working together to create shared tools and resources, and a joint practice standard. This meeting, however, marks the first time the three Boards have met formally to discuss our working relationship.
At the meeting, the Boards agreed to a number of steps:
- Establish a task group, consisting of two board members from each college (an elected professional representative and an appointed public representative) and the three registrars. This group will look at how to further strengthen the relationship among the three colleges.
- Explore options for shared office space. Each of the three colleges currently occupies a separate physical space (Port Moody, Burnaby and Vancouver). After several months of informal discussions, the three boards have now formally agreed to explore options for a shared office space.
- Finalize principles to guide ongoing discussion among the three Colleges as we explore future options to strengthen our relationship.
We are committed to keeping nurses, staff and the public updated as these discussions progress.
