Proposed Bylaw Amendments

Updated December 2017

On December 1, 2017 the Board of the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of British Columbia (CLPNBC) approved changes to Schedule B of CLPNBC’s Bylaws. The approved changes will formalize granting of recognition to Northwest Community College access practical nursing education program.

In July 2017, Northwest Community College (NWCC) submitted a Notice of Intent (NOI) to offer an access practical nursing program beginning in January 2018.

CLPNBC is requesting that Schedule B: Recognized Practical Nursing Education Programs be repealed and replaced with the new Schedule B. 

A copy of the new Schedule B: Recognized Practical Nursing Education Programs was distributed to BC health professions colleges and posted here on CLPNBC’s website to ensure that the public and other interested stakeholders may view the Board approved amendments in a timely manner.
