BCCNP has received a number of complaints today about racist and offensive social media posts being made by an individual alleged to be a nurse on Vancouver Island. We take these complaints seriously.
Note that this individual is not listed in the BCCNP public register as a current or former nurse.
Hatred and racism have no place in our public discourse, health care system, or anywhere else. BCCNP strongly condemns this type of language and behaviour and will take swift action should we receive new information indicating that this person is indeed a nurse in British Columbia.
Nurses practising in B.C. are held to professional standards as well as other standards that govern social media use.
