Quality assurance

​​Welcome to the BCCNM QA program

As part of our mandate to protect the public through the regulation of nurses and midwives, BCCNM is required to maintain a quality assurance program. The purpose of the QA program is to ensure the public continually receives safe, competent, and ethical care, by supporting nurses to engage in ongoing reflection and development.

Nurses and midwives are autonomous professionals with broad scope and significant professional responsibility. This means they must be lifelong learners, who continually assess and improve their practice.

By participating in BCCNM's quality assurance program, nurses demonstrate that they take professional development and continued competence in practice seriously. Meeting QA requirements is an important way to maintain the public's trust.

Help & support

The BCCNM QA team is available to assist with all aspects of quality assurance. The team can support self-assessment, help registrants set professional development goals, and review feedback from colleagues. They are a resource for everyone participating in BCCNM's QA program. The QA team is available via email or phone.​​
