During the course of your nursing career, you may find yourself in a position where meeting professional nursing standards is hard. As a result, BCNU and the employers have come together to develop a professional responsibility process for nurses and managers to follow, when nurses feel their ability to meet professional standards is being threatened.
This process is a critical tool for upholding your professional standards. It was mutually developed by the employer and BCNU, designed to help you meet your professional standards and deliver improved patient care.
The revised PR process addresses only professional practice problems related to the Nursing Standards of Practice of the provincial regulatory body including those which may put patients, residents and/or clients at risk and intends to solve practice issues collaboratively at the local level. Workload/staffing related issues are now addressed through Article 60 and nurse safety issues through Article 32.
