Support & quality assurance

BCCNP resources support competent and ethical practice.

​​IMPORTANT — New BC College of Nurses and Midwives (BCCNM)

As of Sept. 1, 2020, the BC College of Nursing Professionals (BCCNP) and the College o​f Midwives of BC (CMBC) amalgamated to become the BC College of Nurses and Midwives (BCCNM). The new BCCNM website is under construction and will be launched in late Fall 2020. In the interim, visitors can still retrieve information about nursing regulation from the BCCNP website or midwifery regulation from the CMBC website. Although the content on both websites may refer to BCCNP or CMBC respectively, it is the most current information on nursing and midwifery regulation. We appreciate your patience while we work towards launching the new BCCNM website and updating all our documents to reflect our new BCCNM name and brand.​​

 Library resources

Most nurses can access library resources via their affiliation with the employers or post-secondary institutions on the left. If you are in private practice or work for an employer that does not provide access to library resources, and you are an NNPBC member, you may register with NNPBC to access the online resources of the Electronic Health Library of BC (eHLbc).
