Minister of Health makes regulation changes to support creation of British Columbia College of Nurses and Midwives

Jul 7, 2020

​BCCNP and the College of Midwives of British Columbia are pleased to announce that the Hon. Adrian Dix, B.C.'s Minister of Health, has signed an order amending four profession-specific regulations under the Health Professions Act as required to support our amalgamation.

These changes officially give us our new name: the British Columbia College of Nurses and Midwives, or BCCNM. The new college will begin regulating nurses and midwives on Sep. 1, 2020.

The next milestone is the appointment of the first BCCNM board, anticipated sometime over the summer. Board members will be appointed by the Minister of Health.
