Complaints & discipline

Our work is guided by provincial legislation called the Health Professions Act. It is your right to submit a written complaint to BCCNM if you believe that the concerns that you have about a nurse or midwife's conduct or competence warrants a formal investigation by the regulatory body.

About complaints and discipline

​​BCCNM is required by law to regulate the nursing and midwifery professions in the public interest. As part of this responsibility, BCCNM ensures:

  • The public is protected from incompetent, unethical, or impaired nursing or midwifery practice.

  • Nurses and midwives do not practice unless they can do so safely.​
