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.

Gift giving is a complex issue and can blur boundaries. Giving token gifts as a group may be acceptable. When deciding, discuss with your colleagues and consider:
Developing unit guidelines for celebrating client birthdays would provide direction.
Refer to the Boundaries in the Nurse-Client Relationship practice standard for further guidance.
