Employed student nurse registration (RN)


COVID-19: Info for student applicants

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, BCCNP is waiving the requirement for applicants to complete Form 10.1 as part of their application. The most important thing for student applicants is that you have a job offer. Students who do not have an employer are not eligible for Employed Student Nurse registration.

Note that ID also does not need to be notarized at this time. Scans of identity documents are acceptable. A notarized document containing 2 pieces of valid ID (one of which includes a photo) will be required after the pandemic is ended.

​​Registration with BCCNP is mandatory for all nursing students employed as an employed student nurse in a B.C. health care setting.

​Getting started

Before starting your application, notarize* and scan your identification document(s), e.g., driver's licence, passport, birth certificate, and marriage certificate.

Submit two identification documents that include your birth name (one piece of identification must include your photo). If you legally changed your name, submit one notarized document for each of your past or present​ legal names.

If you have previously been granted employed student registration in the past, then ​​you do not need to submit your identity ​documents​ again.

*Notarization: Note that the requirement to have identity documents notarized is suspended for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic. You can submit scanned documents.​​

 Fees

The Employed Student Registration (ESR) application fee is $150, which you pay when you apply.

In addition, you will pay the registration fee when you complete your application.

During the COVID-19 pandemic

Applicants will need to pay the application, registration, and CNPS fees to obtain practising ESN registration.

BCCNP will refund the application fee and a pro-rated registration fee to those who obtain practising ESN registration during the pandemic. Refunds will be processed once the pandemic is declared ended.

For students graduating this year who register during the pandemic and will be taking out provisional registration, BCCNP will apply their registration fees to their provisional registration.
