The BCCNP bylaws and policies outline the requirements for registration. Staff use these to review registration applications and inform applicants of the steps they must take to become registered.
Applications are only brought to the BCCNP registration committee when the application is
not routine in nature or when an applicant wants the committee to review a staff decision. Applicants
do not appear before the committee in person, but can address the committee in writing.
Any limits and conditions applied to practice by the Registration Committee under section 20(2.1) of the Act are made to protect the public.
The registration committee is made up of nursing professionals and public representatives who have been appointed by the BCCNP board.Meetings have a mix of registrant members and public members in attendance.
