Three nursing colleges joining to co-create new regulator


The College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of BC (CRPNBC), the College of Registered Nurses of BC (CRNBC) and the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of BC (CLPNBC) are excited to announce we will be co-creating a new nursing body that will replace our existing colleges. This new body will regulate all nurses in BC: LPNs, NPs, RNs and RPNs.

A report, completed by Western Management Consultants 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. 


Moving forward

In the coming months, CRPNBC, CRNBC and CLPNBC will be launching a consultation process to get feedback from the nursing community and other stakeholders. 

We are committed to keeping nurses, staff and the public updated as these discussions progress. 

Please feel free to contact any of the three leaders if you have questions or concerns:
