- Each Regional Network is unique. Regional Chairs, along with their members define the structure and terms of their networks (e.g. how many meetings, where to meet, how to identify local needs etc).
- Regional Networks can support the identification of regional health and nursing policy and practice issues. Regional Networks engage with BCCNA who can support the networks to address issues within the region’s specific context.
- Regional Networks provide a valuable forum for nurses to relationship build, support one another, find their professional voice and address issues.
