BCCNM 10.1 Form and Letters of Good Standing Process for ESN

We have received several enquiries regarding Letters of Good Standing process.

Firstly, we highly recommend that BSN students review the ESN/HCA Policy linked here.

Secondly, we will provide you with a letter at the end of Term 3 indicating you are in ‘Good Standing’ in the Program. Detailed information about the process and directions for requesting a letter will be emailed to students in July, and letters will not be issued until the first week of August.

Please note, that all our Health Authority practice partners are well aware of our UBC letter of Good standing process, so although they may have listed a general deadline for letters of good standing, UBC BSN program does not issue these letters until the end of Term 3.

With that said, please bear with us and if you so desire, you may reference our policy to the recruitment representative at the site you are applying for.

Students must complete the BCCNM ESN Form 10.1 and submit to it to the Student Services Office at bsnprogram@nursing.ubc.ca to have the school complete Part B.

Justice in Health Care Ethics Virtual Conference

We invite you to join us for the Not Just Unintended Consequences: Justice in Health Care Ethics virtual conference taking place on May 5-6, 2022.
In this two-day ethics education event, rising voices and important truths will illuminate the shortcomings of a healthcare system that has attended most to those with privilege – whether due to intent, convenience, oversight or disinterest. This learning will challenge our systems of research, health care access, innovation processes, prioritization of funding and even our health care ethics lens. With the humility required to examine the social failures of healthcare, this conference will look for opportunities to build cultural safety and realign the work of the health care system to answer society’s call to justice.
