Please note, NNPBC will implement a mid-year fee starting October 1, 2022. The mid year fee will be $20.95 inclusive of GST for RNs, RPNs, NPs and LPNs only (ESNs, non-practising and Associates pay the same amount regardless of when you join).
NNPBC knows that nurses have felt the burden of working in the midst of a global pandemic. In an effort to reduce a financial burden on nurses, NNPBC has decided to reduce our annual fee for 2022, from $54.60 including GST to $41.99 including GST. This represents a cost savings to BC nurses of 23%. NNPBC remains a voluntary organization.
While we have reduced fees, NNPBC has expanded our services to continue to meet the evolving needs of our members.

- NNPBC fees remain among the lowest of other health professional associations.
- Service offerings have and will continue to expand throughout 2022.
