CNPS: Your PLP provider
Liability protection is a BCCNP registration requirement, but the college does not provide PLP to registrants. The
Canadian Nurses Protective Society (CNPS) provides PLP for all BCCNP NPs, RNs and RPNs. CNPS is an independent, not-for-profit organization that is specifically tailored to meet the professional liability needs of nurses.
Practising registrants pay a fee upon initial registration to become beneficiaries of CNPS and gain access to their services. This status is renewed annually by paying a CNPS fee at registration renewal.

Office hours are Monday to Friday, 08:30 to 16:30 hours EST/EDT.
All NPs and RNs are also covered by Commercial General Liability insurance provided by Encon Group Inc. If you have questions about this policy, please direct them to Nurse and Nurse Practitioners of B.C.
