BCNPA | Creating Positive Change in the Health of All British Columbians
BCNPA Town Hall Meeting October 30, 2014

All NPs and NP students are encouraged to attend a special 2014 Town Hall meeting on October 30.

BCNPA has been the voice of  nurse practitioners in British Columbia since 2005. However, in 2010, the Association of Registered Nurses of BC (ARNBC) came into being and represents the interests of both Registered Nurses and Nurse Practitioners at the provincial, national and international level.  The two Associations have worked closely together over the past few years, but recognize that a more formal arrangement between the two would be beneficial for all and would clarify many of the questions raised by stakeholders, government and the public.

Join us in person at Paezhold Auditorium (VGH) at 7pm on October 30, or join via webcast, to share your thoughts and vision for the future of the BCNPA and how you would like to see us collaborate with ARNBC.

Nurse Practitioners provide accessible, efficient, and effective health care that meets
the highest standards of practice.

In British Columbia a Nurse Practitioner (NP) is a Registered Nurse with a Masters Degree, advanced knowledge and skills who provides high quality health care. NPs are able to diagnose, consult, order & interpret tests, prescribe, and treat health conditions. They work independently and collaboratively to provide British Columbians with Primary and Specialized Health Care using a team-based approach.
