The LPNABC is proud to be a member of the BC Coalition of Nursing Associations (BCCNA)
ABOUT THE BC COALITION OF NURSING ASSOCIATIONS
The BC Coalition of Nursing Associations is the first ever organization of its kind in Canada, bringing together leadership from all four BC nursing professional associations and our nurse educators, in one collaborative forum for discussion, action and advocacy.
Member organizations include:
The Association of Registered Nurses of BC
The Association of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of BC
The BC Nurse Practitioner Association
The Licensed Practical Nurses Association of BC
The Nursing Education Council of BC
The Coalition was established as a way to engage elected nurse leaders from across the professional nursing groups in discussion around topics, policy and directions that impact the nursing profession as a whole. Each professional association has nominated three positions from their own board to sit at the Coalition table, and the NECBC has nominated two individuals from the directors of the nursing schools. This structure ensures equal representation of all four nursing groups, regardless of their numbers, to ensure fair, objective discussion that benefits all nurses can take place.
By modelling collaboration, equality and a team-based approach at the Coalition, it is our hope that the nursing community will come together with respect and support for one another.
Nursing has an important role to play in health system transformation and one of the first areas we must address is within our own profession. Breaking down the hierarchies and moving to open, honest and solutions-oriented discussion will play a significant role in helping all of nursing to find it’s voice.
