As of Sept. 1, 2016, nurse practitioners (NPs) in B.C. will be able to fully complete the Person with Disabilities (PWD) Designation Application for people under their care.
The Ministry of Social Development and Social Innovation is currently completing the necessary updates to its policy, procedures and PWD designation application form to accommodate completion of section 2 of the form by a nurse practitioner.
This change ensures nurse practitioners can provide comprehensive care for their clients who are applying for disability assistance from the ministry.
