Is it time to take a fresh look at your Professional Standards?
The Professional Standards outline the achievable levels of performance that patients and the public expect of you and your fellow RNs in British Columbia. Whether you’re a clinician, educator, manager, researcher or all of the above, your practice is reflected in these standards. If you have a few minutes you might like to revisit them - we've even created a handy table for each Standard.
