Professional Standards Survey


BCCNP is working on harmonizing and revising the Professional Standards (and the Code of Ethics for Registered Psychiatric Nurses) for all nursing designations in BC. These standards provide an overall framework for the practice of licensed practical nurses, nurse practitioners, registered nurses and registered psychiatric nurses in British Columbia. They set out the minimum levels of performance that nurses are required to achieve in their practice.

This work is being driven by a desire to provide consistent regulation by BCCNP for all nursing designations, and also reflects changes proposed by the Steering Committee on the Modernization of Health Professional Regulation.

You are being asked for your opinions on the current Professional Standards for your designation.

The survey should take about 20 minutes to complete and will be available until July 9, 2020.

Before you begin the survey, please review the Professional Standards for your designation:
