BC History of Nursing Society

In 1989, a group of registered nurses foudned the B.C. History of Nursing Professional Practice Group under the umbrella of the Registered Nurses Association of BC (now the College of Registered Nurses of BC. In 2008 the organization became registered under the Society Act of BC and is now known as the B.C. History of Nursing Society (BCHNS). The mission of the founders was to discover, disseminate, and preserve BC's nursing history.

Current BCHNS Society members are mainly BC registered nurses and nursing students but also include historians, researchers and citizens or groups supporting the Society and its mission. The Society is also a member of the Virtual Museum of Canada.
