What We Do
Facilitate dialogue with the College of Registered Nurses of BC, the BC Nurses Union, the
Canadian Nurses Association and others to interpret and articulate scope and boundaries of
current structural gaps in professional nursing policy engagement in BC.
Serve as an informal network in which interested individual nurses and groups of nurses can
be informed and involved in the ongoing process of creating the appropriate organizational
structure to best serve the nursing profession on a permanent basis.
As possible, serve as a point of contact for the most relevant group about issues outside the
current mandate of existing organizations that may benefit from a nursing lens toward obtaining
the most effective public policy.

Implications of Membership
The RN Network is a transitional organization of individuals and groups aiming toward addressing a matter of
concern to all nurses in BC. Those who have joined the coalition of interested nurses have signaled their
desire to work together to explore the creation of a permanent forum for the expression of a BC nursing
perspective on matters of public policy, whether they be local, national, or global. Members will receive
regular updates on Interim Steering Committee progress, and will be notified of general meetings.
