updated Sept. 1, 2020
The BC College of Nurses and Midwives (BCCNM) officially launched on Sep. 1, 2020. The establishment of BCCNM marks an exciting new era in professional regulation: we are Canada's first nurse and midwife regulator, as well as western Canada's largest health professional regulator.
Our new college is excited to build on the strong foundations of collaboration and partnership established by the former colleges: The College of Midwives of BC and the BC College of Nursing Professionals. We look forward to continuing to work with other regulators, health system partners and the public to build and deploy best practices in regulation.
The creation of BCCNM is in line with the Ministry of Health’s ongoing efforts to streamline and modernize health profession regulation in B.C. We look forward to continuing our collaboration with the BC Government on this exciting work.
For most registrants, day-to-day interactions with the college shouldn't be impacted.
We're hard at work on building our new website and developing our brand—look for updates on that later this fall. For the time being, we'll continue to maintain the existing college websites. You can also like and follow us on our social media channels:
We look forward to a collaborative relationship. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.
