CRNBC publishes a variety of professional conduct notices. These notices include the Criminal Record Review Non-compliance list; Consensual Complaint Resolution: consent agreements; and Investigation, Inquiry and Discipline Hearings. Also included in the notices are examples of resolutions reached with CRNBC and registrants who have gone through the formal complaint process.
A criminal record check is mandatory for all registrants of CRNBC. If a CRNBC registrant fails to undergo the criminal record review, then he/she is no longer allowed to practice as a nurse in British Columbia and may not use the title Registered Nurse or RN.
When a registrant goes through the formal complaint process, the complaint is resolved in one of two ways.
The resolution examples are based on actual consent agreements to illustrate how complaints are resolved using the Consensual Complaint Resolution process.
