What is a Regional Chapter? Many B.C. nurses will remember the Chapters that existed years ago under the RNABC and the important role that they played in connecting nurses with each other and with the issues that impacted the health and well-being of people in their regions. A BCCNA Regional Chapter is the same type of local hub.
In keeping with the values of the BCCNA of inclusiveness and collaboration, a Regional Chapter is a space where nurses of all different types of practice and designations can connect and work together along with community members to identify and address regional needs and issues. A Regional Chapter is also a valuable space for nurses to relationship build, support one another, find their professional voice.
