The British Columbia College of Nursing Professionals (BCCNP) is seeking input as we develop a new practical nursing (PN) regulatory exam. Specifically, we need the assistance of three BC-registered licensed practical nurses (LPNs) who graduated in 2018; two LPN educators; and one clinical instructor/educator.
This volunteer opportunity is a chance to participate in an important professional development activity: taking part in a two-day Practice Analysis Panel meeting on January 9 and 10, 2019 in Chicago. Travel-related expenses will be covered.
Deadline for applications is
9 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 19, 2018.
