Changing your registration status during renewal


Fee changes effective March 1, 2020 

Effective March 1, 2020, reinstatement applications to practising registration will cost $225+GST, an increase of $125+GST for NPs, RNs and RPNs. ​​Refund processing (when a registrant requests to cancel registration) will be reduced from $100+GST to $75+GST. These changes have been factored into the suggestions below. 

Take a look and the information below. Not sure what to do? Please call ​us and we'll walk you through it.​​

Leaving practice

If you are currently a practising registrant and will be taking a leave from nursing in 2020, check out our leaving practice decision trees below to find out the most economical option for you.

Returning to practice

If you cancelled your registration before you went on leave and are gearing up to return to practice, you have a few options based on your return to work date. 

Remember to submit your reinstatement application early! Reinstatement applications take longer to process because we need to review when you last practised, as well as evidence of good character, fitness to practice and competency requirements. ​​

 When are you returning to work?

Before February 28, 2020

​​You must apply to reinstate your practising registration (and recieve confirmation of reinstatement)​, and then complete a renewal application.

Apply as early as possible to ensure you have time to reinstate your registration and then renew.

​​Apply to reinstate your practising registration with the start date of March 1, 2020. ​

 Leaving practice due to disability/illness

​Check with your employer and/or disability insurance company before you make changes to your status. Some disability carriers or employers may require you to maintain practising registration to receive benefits. ​​
