The Nurse Practitioner Regulation Framework Implementation Plan Project (NPR-FIPP) is a multi-year, multi-faceted initiative commissioned by the Canadian Council of Registered Nurse Regulators (CCRNR). The project will implement the recommendations for six basic elements of a Model for Nurse Practitioner Regulation in Canada, which B.C. stakeholders were consulted on in early 2019:
The first year of the project will focus on developing work plans and beginning the work on entry-level examination and education programs.
This project is informed by extensive consultation in 2019 with nurse practitioners, educators, employers, government, professional associations and regulators in B.C. and nationally. A Stakeholder Panel will be formed this fall to bring key voices and perspectives to inform project leaders and activities.
To learn more about the project, visit the NPR-FIPP page on the CCRNR website, and consider signing up for the NPR-FIPP newsletter to stay up to date on the project’s progress.
Sandra Regan, Deputy Registrar, Education, Practice and Regulatory Learning, will represent BCCNP on the Steering Committee. If you have questions about this project and how the recommendations will be implemented in B.C., please contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
