As a step to further integrate Nurse Practitioners into the province’s team-based primary health care system, the Regional Leadership Program is a collaborative initiative between Nurses and Nurse Practitioners of BC (NNPBC) and the Ministry of Health (MoH) to develop and deliver a leadership program, which includes an NP leader for each of the five regions across the province, including the Fraser, Interior, Island, Vancouver, and Northern regions. This includes an NP Regional Leader who can provide clinical and professional coaching, mentoring and leadership to contracted NPs working on Primary Care service contracts.  The NP Practice Leads will also act as liaisons with regional Primary Care Network (PCNs) partners to assist with NP role clarity in order to support successful integration of NPs into local PCNs. The overall objective is to ensure that each of the regions is well supported from a leadership and mentorship perspective to advance the NPs within their communities as leaders themselves.  

NNPBC’s Regional Leadership Team is responsible for direct practice support and mentorship of local, independently contracted NP’s within PCNs. This role aligns directly with the NP initiatives from the Ministry of Health related to Primary Care Networks (PCNs). Additionally, an Indigenous Provincial Lead supports Indigenous initiatives, practice support for NPs working with Indigenous people/communities and acts as a knowledge keeper/support with respect to integration of NP roles in Indigenous communities and settings.
