The College of Midwives of BC (CMBC) and the BC College of Nursing Professionals (BCCNP) are very pleased to report that government has posted the regulation changes supporting the amalgamation of our two colleges.
Included among the amendments is the proposed name of the new college: the BC College of Nurses and Midwives. Government has also accepted our proposed amalgamation date of Sept. 1, 2020.
We're very pleased that government has moved quickly to post these amendments, especially considering the considerable demands being made on the Ministry of Health with regard to COVID-19. This is a strong endorsement that our proposed amalgamation is well aligned with their vision for modernizing health profession regulation.
