College of Registered Nurses of BC
Nursing has been a self-governing profession in British Columbia since 1918. Under provincial legislation (Health Professions Act), it is the duty of the College of Registered Nurses of BC (CRNBC) to protect the public through regulation of registered nurses, nurse practitioners, and licensed graduate nurses. This includes:
- registering nurses
- setting standards of practice
- assessing nursing education programs in BC
- addressing complaints about registered nurses, nurse practitioners and licensed graduate nurses
Whatever the nature of a concern or complaint, it is taken seriously. First priority is given to the public interest and public protection.
