CRNBC's legal obligation is to protect the public through the regulation of registered nurses, setting standards of practice, assessing nursing education programs in B.C., and addressing complaints about CRNBC registrants.
By participating in CRNBC's Quality Assurance Program throughout the year, nurses demonstrate their commitment to maintaining their competence to practise.
Case study: It's a Saturday night in emerg when a man arrives wanting a medication order filled. He's not a client and tells Selena, an experienced critical care nurse, that he doesn't want an assessment.

Only nurses who hold practising registration can work or volunteer as a nurse. It is illegal to practise nursing without current registration.
The post immediately catches Kiera's eye. A new mom is describing her four-month-old's persistent barking cough and is asking the Mom & Baby Facebook group for advice. As a new mom herself, Kiera enjoys the support the group provides, but as a nurse, this post raises a red flag.
I work part-time as an RN and part-time as a real estate agent. Can I put “RN” on my real estate business cards?
No. Selling real estate is not considered nursing practice. To use the title RN you need to have practising registration with CRNBC and be in compliance with CRNBC bylaws. You can’t use the title RN for advertising, marketing or promoting services when the main purpose is sales and/or the product is not used to provide nursing services.
Although you cannot use the title “RN” on your real estate cards, you may use your academic credentials (e.g., BScN).
For more information about using titles, refer to the Appropriate Use of Titles practice standard and the CRNBC Bylaws (section 8.04) and/or contact Practice Support.
