Tips for NP prescribers

May 2, 2019

In order to avoid delays when ordering a prescription pad for controlled drugs and substances, nurse practitioners (NPs) are reminded to ensure the address in their BCCNP record matches the address they provide when submitting an order. Pads will not be distributed to NPs unless the addresses match.

NPs can update their contact information by signing into their BCCNP account.

CDS prescribing tip: maintaining your records

The second (blue) copy of the prescription form should be retained with the patient's medical record. Do not leave these copies in the prescription pad.

Service interruption

BCCNP will be taking our systems offline Friday, June 28 through till Tuesday, July 2, 1 p.m. for maintenance. During this time, prescription pad ordering will be unavailable. NPs should ensure they get any orders in by June 27 to ensure processing before the long weekend.
