British Columbia College of Nurses and Midwives (BCCNM) - Registration Requirements

When you apply to register as a Registered Nurse with the British Columbia College of Nurses and Midwives (BCCNM) upon completion of the BSN program, you must meet BCCNM's Competencies and Standards for Entry-Level Registered Nurse Practice in British Columbia. It is important that you are aware of these requirements prior to applying for admission to the nursing program. 

If you have concerns about whether or not you meet the Required Skills and Abilities from the BCCNM for practicing as a registered nurse, you may request an advising appointment with BSN Admissions.
