NNPBC is a not for profit society registered in the province of British Columbia

Policy & Advocacy: Position Statements & Policy Discussion

As the professional association representing all of BC's nurses, NNPBC is the link between nurses, policymakers and government. NNPBC provides opportunities for nurses to engage in policy development and advocacy around issues that impact the nursing profession and the health and well-being of British Columbians.
 

Nurses have a wealth of knowledge and expertise in identifying and advancing key policy issues that impact their nursing practice, their patients, and their community. NNPBC is strongly committed to ensuring that nurses have opportunities to participate in the policy development and advocacy process through forums, consultations, surveys, email, social media and meetings.
 

Issues within nursing and the healthcare system are constantly evolving. Nurses are welcome to identify policy areas that you would like us to work on.
