Proposed bylaw amendment: Quality Assurance audits

On December 5, 2014, the Board of the College of Registered Nurses of British Columbia (CRNBC) approved amendments to section 5.10 of the bylaws regarding audits of registrant compliance with quality assurance (QA) requirements.

Throughout 2013 and 2014, an inter-departmental team conducted a review of the bylaws and policy related to the Registrant QA Program. The purpose of the review was to determine what is working well and to identify opportunities for improvement, in light of CRNBC’s regulatory philosophy and 2013/2016 strategic perspectives and objectives.

The project team recommended that changes be made to section 5.10.
