Note that this announcement was updated March 26, 2020, to reflect a change to payment requirements. We thank students for their patience during this rapidly evolving situation.
On March 16, 2020, the Minister of Health requested that we make temporary emergency registration available to individuals that meet the criteria in order to assist in the COVID-19 pandemic response. While B.C. nursing students are
not eligible for temporary emergency registration, BCCNP will be taking the following actions to ensure that students are able to participate in pandemic response as required.
BC nursing students who are not currently registered with BCCNP may apply to become an employed student registrant by following the
instructions on our website. All applicants will need to pay the
application, registration, and CNPS fees to obtain ESN or ESPN registration.
BCCNP will refund the application fee and a pro-rated registration fee for the duration of the pandemic. Refunds will be processed once the COVID-19 pandemic is declared ended.
Individuals who have held ESN or ESPN registration in the past can reinstate their ESN or ESPN registration. They do this by logging into their BCCNP account and applying for ESN/ESPN registration. BCCNP will refund the application fee and a pro-rated registration fee to those who obtain ESN or ESPN registration during the pandemic.
The requirement for employers and instructors to complete form 10.1 has been suspended for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, BCCNP will still accept and process any fully completed form 10.1s which can be uploaded with the application.
