Remote Nursing


Important update about DSTs and Competencies

BCCNP on March 5, 2020, transferred responsibility for the Certified Practice DSTs and Competencies to the Nurses and Nurse Practitioners of BC. Visit their website to access the DSTs.


Remote Nursing Certified Practice frequently (but not necessarily) occurs in communities where there is no resident physician or nurse practitioner, but where physicians or nurse practitioners visit the community periodically and are available to provide consultation to the registered nurse.

Remote Nursing Practice includes Sexually Transmitted Infections and Contraceptive Management.
