To practise as a nursing professional in B.C., you must hold current practising registration with BCCNP. If you practise without practising registration, even accidentally, you are in breach of the Health Professions Act. Your application for reinstatement of practicing registration may require review by the BCCNP Registration Committee. You're also taking a risk that can impact you professionally and financially:
Your BCCNP account can be used for the following:
Due to the holidays and related office closures in December, we recommend you complete your renewal application by November 30 to ensure your application can be assessed and approved prior to the December 31 deadline.
If you do not have or do not wish to use a credit card for payment, we also accept INTERAC Online or debit.
If you do not want to use a credit card, the pre-authorized payment (PAP) program may be a good option for you for future renewals.
Tax receipts are available in early January after the renewal period is closed. Eligible fees paid between January 1 and December 31 of one year will be on the tax receipt for the next immediate year. You can access your tax receipt by logging back into your BCCNP account in January.
Use the email address where you receive BCCNP's newsletter. If you do not receive the newsletter, email the registration team. After we verify your identity, we can confirm the email address on your account. If your email address has changed, you can still sign in with the old email address and your BCCNP password. Then select to update your contact information and change to your new email address.
Log into "My Account" using the email address and password you used to renew your registration.
