Ensuring safe nursing care. Together.

B.C. nursing colleges join to become one nursing regulator.


In September 2016, we surveyed nurses and other stakeholders about how we can best meet your needs throughout this journey to strengthen nursing regulation and ultimately enhance patient care.

The results are in! Click here to review the findings.

If you haven't yet had a chance, we invite you to watch the video below to better understand the important role of nursing regulators.

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 working to co-create a new nursing body that will replace our existing colleges. This new body will regulate all nurses in B.C.: LPNs, NPs, RNs and RPNs.

A report, completed by Western Management Consultants in 2016, confirms a number of benefits of forming a single nursing college. We are committed to keeping nurses, staff and the public updated as these discussions progress.
