Administrative history

The Pediatric Nurses’ Group (PNG) was formed by members of the Registered Nurses Association of British Columbia (RNABC) and interested nursing students on November 9th, 1982. It operated as a professional practice group under the auspices of the RNABC, currently known as the College of Registered Nurses of British Columbia (CRNBC).

The mission of the PNG was to promote the development of standards, continual educational, resources, and research in Pediatric Nursing care, as well as to advocate the health care needs of children and their families through conferences, workshops, community lectures and nursing research. Conferences were generally held annually, with themes such as “The Winds of Change: Nursing in a New Reality” (1996) and “Caring for Children: Putting the Pieces Together” (1998). Standing committees were formed to carry out specific duties in the areas of membership, education, communication, and special interests.

With many specialist nursing groups becoming available, the need for this organization decreased. The PNG dissolved in 2004.
