The British Columbia College of Nursing Professionals (BCCNP) is B.C.'s nursing regulatory college. As of Sept. 4, 2018 — CLPNBC, CRNBC and CRPNBC joined together to become BCCNP. There are Standards of Practice for each designation of nursing: LPN, NP, RN and RPN. These standards assist nurses to provide safe, competent and ethical care by setting the requirements for practice.
In 2005 the College of Registered Nurses of BC (CRNBC) was formed. Prior to that nursing in BC had been regulated through the Registered Nurses Association of BC (RNABC), which was replaced by the CRNBC. Under provincial legislation (the Health Professions Act), it is the duty of College of Registered Nurses of BC (CRNBC) to protect the public through the regulation of registered nurses, nurse practitioners and licensed graduate nurses.

To monitor your progress and requests specific to your graduate program, the School of Nursing devised a secure, online database called the Student Tracking Service (STS).

To log on to STS, please use your Campus Wide Login (CWL). Students experiencing problems with STS should contact the Student Support Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Practice e-Portfolio (PEP) is a tool for students to record and manage their experiences in the clinical setting. It is also a tool for instructors to track progression of their students in the clinical setting.
Students can login to PeP, go to Reports section and select ‘Export Complete Portfolio’ to download their records. Note: student access to PeP is revoked after graduation. In most cases it is encouraged that students export their own records before their access is revoked.
The Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies has a Checklist for New Graduate Students that can assist you.
Students must order their transcripts themselves (the School of Nursing is not permitted to order them on your behalf).
Note for Graduate Students Applying for Funding Competitions:
If you are a graduate student applying for awards & funding competitions, you will need transcripts to show your current registration & courses in progress.
Here's what to do to obtain a copy of what your program has on file for you:
- Check the competition application details to verify if the competition accepts "PDFs of Official Transcripts," PDFs of "UBC Academic History" or "Official UBC Transcripts."
- Student Services can assist you in obtaining PDF copies of your "UBC Academic History" and PDF copies of transcripts you submitted with your application to graduate school at the School of Nursing.
- To request a copy of the UBC Grad & PostDoc Studies (G+PS) verified transcripts you submitted into e-vision at the start of your program, please email Gino Kim, Graduate Programs Officer.
- Gino will retrieve the copies we have on file, and supplement a copy of your Academic History from the UBC Student Information System to show your current enrolment & courses in progress, then email you the package as PDF.
- If the competition requires that you order official transcripts, you'll be required to do that online as per this link from above.

Yes, if approved. Many schools in Western Canada are part of the Western Dean's Agreement which allows graduate students of the member institutions to take courses at another member institution without having to pay the host university's tuition fees.
To start the program extension request, log into the Student Tracking System (https://sts.nursing.ubc.ca/) with your CWL. On the right side blue menu, click "Courses". On the new page, click the button "Request Transfer Course" and fill in the information. Once you submit, an automated email will go to your supervisor and program coordinator for their review and approval. Once their approval is granted the Student Support Office will complete the paperwork for submission to the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies.
Schools not listed under the Western Dean's Agreement may qualify for other exchange agreements.
