Can I work as a camp nurse while I’m a student?
In order to work as a nursing student in a health care setting, you must be registered with CRNBC as an employed student registrant. Your employer would need to designate a manager or RN/NP supervisor for you to report to and make sure an RN or NP was physically present to provide regulatory supervision when you were working.
As an employed student nurse, you would need to meet the requirements set out in the Employed Student Registrant Practice Standard.
