Web learning modules 

Web learning modules offer you a convenient way to learn. They allow you to learn at your own pace at any time of day. The modules are segmented into topic areas, so you can either complete the modules in their entirety or select a single topic area to focus on. For added convenience, you can stop mid-way through the module and then later return to where you left off to continue your learning.

Controlled Drugs and Substances (CDS)

This module provides nurse practitioners with the relevant legislation and CRNBC competencies, standards, limits and conditions to prescribe controlled drugs and substances (CDS) in British Columbia.

CDS prescribing is a complex area of practice with high rates of morbidity and mortality associated with drug interactions, overdose and addictions. The competencies associated with this practice are distinct and beyond those related to prescribing generally. As such, the CRNBC Standard for CDS prescribing outlines a number of related conditions, including the requirement to successfully complete one of three foundational courses accepted by CRNBC in controlled drugs and substances prescribing and this CDS prescribing learning module.

This module builds on the foundational course NPs take on CDS prescribing. It includes information and activities designed to support NPs in:

  • applying the relevant federal and provincial legislation
  • understanding the CRNBC Standards, Limits, Conditions and Competencies for prescribing CDS in the context of NP practice
  • recognizing the risks and mitigating factors associated with prescribing CDS
  • using pharmacovigilance and applying best practices to mitigate these risks
  • being aware and applying the requirements of the Controlled Prescription Program and PharmaNet when prescribing CDS

Understanding Scope of Practice

When nursing came under the Health Professions Act (HPA) in 2005, many nurses wondered how provincial legislation affected their practice. The answer is that the HPA — through legislation — defines the scope of practice for nurses. To help you understand this relationship, we created a learning module. The self-paced module examines the HPA and scope of practice to help you apply this knowledge to your nursing practice.

Working with Students

Whether working with students as learners or as Employed Students Nurses (ESNs), RNs already supervise students in both these roles. However, nurses in education and clinical settings have asked for more clarity around RN and NP responsibilities. Therefore, the Regulatory Supervision and Employed Student Registrant Practice Standards were introduced to define these responsibilities. These practice standards help everyone understand their role when working with student learners and ESNs. It guides the process nurses choose to use with students and clarifies their accountabilities. To help put these new Standards into practice, we produced the Working with Students learning module.
