BC College of Nurses and Midwives (BCCNM)

As of Sept. 1, 2020, the BC College of Nursing Professionals (BCCNP) and the College o​f Midwives of BC (CMBC) amalgamated to become the BC College of Nurses and Midwives (BCCNM).

The new BC College of Nurses and Midwives (BCCNM) website is under construction and will be launched in late Fall 2020. In the interim, visitors can still retrieve information about nursing regulation from the BCCNP website or midwifery regulation from the CMBC website. Although the content on both websites may refer to BCCNP or CMBC respectively, it is the most current information on nursing and midwifery regulation. We appreciate your patience while we work towards launching the new BCCNM website and updating all our documents to reflect our new BCCNM name and brand.​​

Details below reflect the information provided by BCCNP prior to its merger with the College of Midwives:

The nursing profession is always changing and responding to legislation, public needs and advances in health care. Nursing regulation needs to evolve with it. Check out our e-newsletter for the latest news.
