BCCNP offers consultation services to LPNs, employers, practical nursing education programs, and the public about LPN practice in BC.
If you are an LPN facing a new or unfamiliar ethical dilemma, or an unfamiliar practice situation, it may be helpful to discuss the matter with a nurse from the BCCNP nursing practice team. Members of the team can advise you on topics related to BCCNP's mandate including:
BCCP does not provide clinical or legal advice.
The BCCNP nursing practice team includes experienced LPNs and RNs who hold current registration with the college, and are dedicated to responding to your questions and concerns. You can contact them by telephone or email.
Practice consultation is confidential within the limits of the legislation and the LPN's standards of practice. All nurses, including BCCNP staff, have a duty to take action when they learn of an LPN with professional misconduct, incompetence or impaired practice. LPNs are required to report this information to BCCNP's inquiry & discipline program.
