LPN Day – May 13th 2016

logo - LPN-ABC  Proclamation by LPNABC – May 13th LPN DAY

Each year LPNABC has submitted a letter to the Ministry of Justice department requesting May 13th be retained and proclaimed as “LPN Day” which has been held by BC government for over 2 decades as LPN Day.  It is so important to uphold tradition and ensure that LPNs across BC and Canada hold onto a day of recognition for their special profession.

LPNABC is proud to continue and maintain the proclamation for LPN Day and on behalf of LPNABC board members and memberships I wish every LPN across BC the very best on May 13th LPN DAY!!

Sincerely,

Anita Dickson, President, Jag Tak, 1st Vice President, Michael Young, 2nd Vice President, Brenda Childs, Treasurer and Esme Clarke, Secretary for LPNABC

LPNABC brings update re: Exploring the formation of one nursing regulator in B.C.

CRNBC continues to explore opportunities for collaboration with CRPNBC and CLPNBC. The three colleges have retained WMC consultancy to do a preliminary business case study that explores the formation of one nursing regulator in B.C., while retaining each nursing discipline. The purpose is to obtain more information to determine if one nursing regulator makes financial and regulatory sense. The report, expected to be completed in early 2016, will serve as a starting point for more discussions.  If we go further down this road, CRNBC is committed to consulting stakeholders and providing timely updates.
