Revisions to RN Certified Practice Decision Support Tools

Apr 1, 2024

The Nurses and Nurse Practitioners of BC (NNPBC) are improving the RN Certified Practice Decision Support Tools (DSTs) and competencies. 

For the second phase of this project, based on recommendations from the Certified Practice Reproductive Health Working Group, NNPBC made structural changes to the STI Assessment and Diagnostic Guideline and Care and Treatment Plans. A summary of the changes can be found here. These changes came into effect on March 28, 2024. The content revisions will be made shortly.

Remember, the BC Centre on Substance Use handles DSTs and competencies for Certified Practice for Opioid Use Disorder (CP-OUD). This certification is available to both RNs and RPNs.
