Regulate registered nurses and nurse practitioners in the public interest.
As a relational regulator, CRNBC builds positive relationships by being transparent, respectful, inclusive, and accessible.
CRNBC's philosophy of relational regulation* is based on the following principles:
*Relational regulation means that we believe it is possible to build genuine relationships with nurses and other stakeholders, while at the same time, regulate effectively in the public interest. Public protection and safety is our utmost concern, and we believe we can best achieve this through collaborative approaches with nurses and the health care community.
CRNBC puts the public interest first.
As a result, we focus on regulatory work and make decisions based on public needs and societal expectations.
CRNBC is a relational nursing regulator.
As a result, we maintain our right to self-regulation for RNs and NPs, relational regulation is reflected in our programs and services, and other regulators emulate us.
CRNBC delivers a positive stakeholder experience.
As a result, our stakeholders understand our role, staff deliver customer service that is timely and relevant, and stakeholders believe and trust that we are genuine in our relationships.
CRNBC collaborates to find ways to improve the regulation of nursing professionals in British Columbia.
As a result, we will continue to fully collaborate with the other nursing regulators in BC to co-create a single nursing regulator for the province.
As a result, we invest time, energy and resources in the national and international initiatives that will impact those we protect in the short and long term.
