Aug 19, 2020

We are pleased to announce that the board of the BC College of Nurses and Midwives (BCCNM) has appointed Cynthia Johansen to serve as its first Registrar & CEO. Cynthia currently serves as the Registrar & CEO of the BC College of Nursing Professionals (BCCNP).

Cynthia has assumed decision-making responsibilities on behalf of BCCNM and will continue to consult with Louise Aerts in her capacity as Registrar & Executive Director of CMBC, as we work towards BCCNM go-live on Sept. 1, 2020.

The board is confident that in Cynthia, we have the right person to guide the organization through its critical transformation into Canada's first nurse-midwife regulator, while continuing to position BCCNM as a leader in health profession regulation.

We are also pleased to announce that following amalgamation, Louise will assume the role of Executive Director, Strategy & Integration, with BCCNM. All staff from both BCCNP and CMBC have positions with the new college.

Please join us in congratulating Cynthia and Louise on their new roles with BCCNM.
