BCNPA is the voice of BC NPs. Being a member of BCNPA demonstrates that, together, we are a voice that matters. Membership demonstrates an individual NP’s support for NP representation in BC, which is significant with employers and government.
The cost of membership is less than 75 cents/day and many health authority employers will reimburse this cost.
BCNPA is nearly 100% volunteer-run. We operate on a very tight budget to ensure NP representation and leadership at multiple stakeholder tables.
Please support this work with your membership dollars, and where feasible, your involvement.
The BCNPA membership year starts April 1st through to March 31st.
