BC Nurse Family Partnership-power point presentation
This new initiative that is beginning in January 2012, it is important for all health care providers to knowledgeable and support all of the upcoming changes to the BC health care system in providing the best care for the public.
Licensed Practical Nurses are part of the health care providers and can be part of this solution. As we have heard Registered Nurses working in the Public Health sector have been asked to not increase their numbers but to take on new roles. “Healthy Beginnings” is a new role for the Public Health RN’s and the quandary will be how will they maintain all of the existing services?
LPNABC would like to explore with BC government on how LPNs in BC could also be part of the team and support the Nurse Family Partnership initiative. LPNABC would like to hear from you!
LPNABC also has been busy with sending out a mailout to over 900 LPNs and would welcome renewed memberships at our one time rate for 2012.
The LPNABC board members look forward to working with you bringing your voice to the appropriate forums on your behalf.
We anticipate this will be a busy year with implementation of the new PN curriculum and provincial government review the of the LPN Regulations
Please register and become a member of the LPN Association and together we will build a stronger association to bring your voice to the forefront.
