Three Pillars Representing Nursing Three Pillars Representing Nursing

Hello fellow nurses,

Have you renewed your nursing license yet?

This year you’ll be asked whether you’d like to join NNPBC (Nurses and Nurse Practitioners of BC).

We encourage you to say YES!

Because being a nurse is more than our daily practice, it’s advocating for patients and the health care system.

The diagram shows the three pillars representing nursing -- all three are necessary for a strong profession.

For more info on how NNPBC is working for all nurses, visit the website: https://www.nnpbc.com/index.php

As your professional voice, NNPBC has taken a leading role to:
• advocate for healthy public policy, including responses to the overdose crisis
• promote excellence in nursing practice, including support for new grads
• increase nurses’ contribution to shaping the health system, by working closely with the Ministry of Health to influence decisions that affect nurses and the public we serve
• represent all BC nurses (RNs, LPNs, NPs and RPNs) in one strong, collaborative association
• provide a link to the Canadian Nurses Association and the International Council of Nursing, giving us a powerful voice across the globe

In this Year of the Nurse and Midwife 2020, don’t lose your professional voice!

If you’ve already renewed your license, and hadn’t made up your mind about NNPBC, it’s not too late. You can add NNPBC membership any time! https://www.nnpbc.com/membership/index.php

Contact either of us if you have any questions about NNPBC!
