May 13th at the Legislature

On May 13, 2015, LPN Day, the ARNBC will host members from all four professions to our second annual “Day at the B.C. Legislature” to honour and celebrate nurses. LPNs, NPs, RNs and RPNs will have an opportunity to meet with Minister Lake, Judy Darcy, the Health Critic for the Official Opposition, and other members of the Legislative assembly. The group will also observe the Legislative session and enjoy opportunities for meet-and-greets with MLAs and colleagues. We look forward to this historic event that celebrates collaboration and unity within and among nurses.

We are excited to be a part of this busy and eventful day with the Nursing Family.
National Theme – NURSES: “With you every step of the way”

3 Nursing Colleges explore shared spaces & working together

From the CRNBC website this is an exciting announcement.

Clearly, there is much duplication of services & expenses with the current model of 3 separate colleges. Have on college and within that specific departments/branches for the individual professional makes much more sense. In Ontario, there is the College of Nurses that has great success with the one provincial college model for protecting the public and registrant for the nurses.

The LPNABC supports the concept of one regulatory college for all nurses in British Columbia.
