Are you a midwife or nurse practitioner with experience in patient care reviews, quality improvement or assurance, or health care administration?

Your work will be supported by a dedicated team of investigators and legal counsel with backgrounds in nursing and midwifery, investigation, regulation, and the law.
The College is recruiting for professionals with a range of healthcare training and experience, but preference will be given to individuals with an RM or NP designation or equivalent training. Please highlight your unique background, education, and any area of specific alternative dispute resolution, mediation, and investigative expertise in your application. BCCNM is committed to making our health system more culturally safe for First Nations and Aboriginal people. We encourage candidates who identifying as Indigenous, including First Nations, Inuit, or Metis ancestry to apply.
