What is a nurse practitioner?

Nurse practitioners (NPs) are health care providers who complete graduate level clinical education that allows them to practice autonomously. Nurse practitioners are regulated through the Health Professions Act, and our regulatory college, the British Columbia College of Nurses & Midwives (BCCNM).

Grounded in nursing, we offer a unique perspective and skill set. The nursing lens focuses on patient centered care, shared decision making, health promotion and illness/disease prevention. NP practice does not require physician supervision. With advanced education in medical sciences, NPs provide comprehensive, personalized, evidenced-based healthcare.
