ARNBC’s Rural and Remote Policy Table is comprised of registered nurses and nurse practitioners practicing in rural and remote communities. The objective of this policy table is to provide government and other key stakeholders with a mechanism to communicate with rural and remote nurses to identify policy issues and solutions that impact nursing and the health of patients in rural and remote British Columbia. The policy table meets on a regular basis, and provides leadership and expertise in moving ARNBC’s rural and remote health and nursing portfolio forward.
