New Quality Assurance Requirements for LPNs

  • Bulletin
Effective April 1, 2019, Jurisprudence is being discontinued as a Quality Assurance Program component for LPNs.

LPNs who were assigned to complete jurisprudence in 2019 will no longer be required to complete it.

Under British Columbia College of Nursing Professionals quality assurance bylaws, every practicing and provisional LPN registrant will be required to make an annual personal practice review declaration as a condition of renewing their registration for 2020. This is a new requirement for LPN registrants.

Registrants will be required to declare that they have met all the following requirements within the previous one-year period:

  • Completed a confidential self-assessment of their practice using applicable BCCNP standards of practice;
  • Sought and received peer feedback (if they were engaged in practice during the previous year); 
  • Developed and implemented a learning plan; and 
  • Evaluated the impact of their learning plan on their practice

BCCNP expects registrants to keep supporting records to document their compliance with the annual personal practice review requirement (and other requirements of the BCCNP's quality assurance program) for at least five years after the end of each calendar year. These records may be subject to audit by BCCNP and the Quality Assurance Committee may require a registrant to submit information to verify their compliance with the personal practice review requirement.
