One nursing regulator survey results

In September 2016, CLPNBC, the College of Registered Nurses of BC and the College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of BC invited nurses, staff and other stakeholders to take a survey about becoming one nursing regulator. We received almost 2,400 responses and would like to thank everyone who completed the survey.

At this stage, the survey results have provided the three colleges with valuable and sufficient feedback to move forward with the creation of one nursing regulator, while keeping stakeholders' concerns in mind. We invite you to read the summary report to learn more.

What are Pre-Authorized Payments?

Using Pre-Authorized Payments (PAP) is a way to pre-pay for your estimated renewal fees. If you sign up for PAP, you build a credit balance towards the next renewal year’s fee by paying a portion of your fees every month up to the start of the next renewal. PAP is not a payment plan for the current year.

Remember - you must complete a renewal application form every year, even if you signed up for PAP.
