LPNABC was proud to be part of preliminary discussions with the Ministry of Health regarding the April 2015 reposting of proposed “Nurses (Licensed Practical) Regulation changes. On behalf of the LPNABC board and membership we have submitted the following report. LPNABC Submission to Ministry Of Health – final submission July 8 2015
LPNABC, in consultation with a communication advisor, wanted to be respectful and take a period of reflection before we released a formal statement to our LPNABC membership and stakeholders.
Our intention was to first give time to both of the resignations to reflect as this was not foreseen or anticipated. We respect both of the LPNABC board members in their decision to resign for individual reasons. LPNABC Board has now formally accepted their resignations.
As in the past and in other organizations, change in leadership happens regularly and sometimes unexpectedly. We are volunteers and we work hard to balance professional life with personal life but sometimes this doesn’t work as planned for various reasons.
LPNABC remains committed to continuing all the wonderful work that is detailed in our approved strategic plan. The Association continues to build strong working relationships with government, employers and educators and has honored all meetings previously arranged. The formation of the BC Coalition of Nursing Associations that is inclusive of LPNABC is a strong demonstration that we are and will continue to represent LPNs in BC.
LPNABC Executive Board is proud to be part of the upcoming July 15th event. Please see www.bccna.com for details and watch our own website for news of continuing efforts.
LPNABC members are welcome to provide comments, feedback and suggestion to the LPNABC board.
