NNPBC advocates for healthy public policy, promotes excellence in nursing practice, increases nurses' contribution to shaping the health system, and influences decisions that affect nurses and the public they serve. NNPBC members benefit from membership in many ways.
Through our advocacy work and ongoing consultations with the B.C. government, health authorities, Indigenous groups and other stakeholders, we are vigilant in our mission to enhance the nursing profession. Members are often among the first to learn of proposed changes to public policy and members often provide input in policy making decisions. Learn more...

NNPBC Ambassador Program
An NNPBC Ambassador is any current or former nurse or nursing student of any designation who wants to act as a communications link between NNPBC and your worksite, school and/or community. If you're a nurse with a passion for promoting the role of the professional association, a retired nurse looking to remain connected to the profession, or a student nurse with a passion for advocacy, then this is the program for you. Join us!
In addition to a Board of Directors, NNPBC has four councils (one for each of the nursing designations) that help to support the Board of directors in advocating and setting strategic policy direction for their designations. Each council also has their own defined area on the website called a portal. Be sure to check out council portals to learn more about issues and work specific to your designation.
NNPBC members also enjoy a number of free services, including regular updates from the Association, media assistance, attendance at the Annual General Meeting. Learn more...
