Nurse in Practice launches

Feb 14, 2024

The following letter was sent by the FPSC Co-Chairs, Ted Patterson (Ministry of Health) and Dr Sari Cooper (Doctors of BC) to the PCN Steering Committee Co-chairs, Collaborative Services Committee Co-chairs, PCN Managers, Division of Family Practice Executive Directors, First Nations Health Authority Vice Presidents of Regional Operations & Regional Primary Care Managers, Nurse and Nurse Practitioners of BC Leaders, and Health Authority Primary Care Vice Presidents and Executive Directors.

We wanted to reach out as the Family Practice Service Committee Co-Chairs to celebrate the launch of an exciting new program in primary care: Nurse in Practice (NinP).

This was a key deliverable of the PCN (Primary Care Network) Refresh, and we appreciate your patience as the Ministry worked through the many details required to bring this program to fruition.

If you have questions about the program as you read through the details, please contact

This is the beginning of a new phase in our primary care transformation journey and we continue to be grateful for all of the work you do in your communities.
