On Apr. 23, 2020, the BCCNP Board approved amendments to Schedules C and D of the college bylaws under the Health Professions Act. The amendment to Schedule C would remove Douglas College Diploma in Psychiatric Nursing from the list of psychiatric nursing education programs recognized by the college. Douglas College has discontinued this diploma program, but will continue to offer its BCCNP-recognized Bachelor of Science in Psychiatric Nursing program. The amendment to Schedule D would add University of Northern British Columbia in Fort St. John Baccalaureate Registered Nurse Program to the list of nursing education programs recognized by the college. This is a new program that will be delivered by the UNBC School of Nursing at the UNBC regional campus in Fort St. John located within Northern Lights College.
We request that any comments on these proposed amendments be submitted to BCCNP no later than Aug. 27, 2020.
