Minister Adrian Dix announces 200 New NPs for BC

24 May 2018

In the Honourable Adrian Dix's own words (from his Twitter feed):

Today as part of Premier Horgan’s team-based primary care plan, I announced the creation of 200 nurse practitioner positions across B.C. and a 66 per cent increase in NP seats at 3 BC universities. This will improve care for people across B.C.

UBC's School of Nursing will benefit from the announced increase in NP seats, and was represented at the announcement by Director Elizabeth Saewyc and a team of nurse practitioners, NP students, and NP faculty.
