Certified Practice

The following bylaw amendment was approved by government and became effective May 15, 2011.

On December 3, 2010, the Board of the College of Registered Nurses of British Columbia (CRNBC) met to consider changes to the CRNBC Bylaws related to certified practices.

The proposed amendments:

  • Will ensure that only “eligible” registrants, specifically registered nurses and nurse practitioners, may be certified. The current Bylaws do not provide for nurse practitioners, who are not also registered nurse registrants, to be on the certified practice register.
  • The changes also provide further clarification on the timing of meeting continuing competence requirements for registrants with certified practice.
  • Specifically the changes will require that registrants with certified practice include at least one learning activity option in their personal practice review requirements each year. The current bylaws state that this requirement needs to be met at least once over a three year period.

A copy of the proposed bylaw amendments has been distributed to BC health professions colleges and has also been posted on the CRNBC website to ensure that the public and other interested stakeholders may view the proposed changes in a timely manner.
