NP: returning to practice

Reinstating your registration

Before you apply to change your registration status to practising, there are a few important things to know:
  • Only nurse practitioners (NP) with practising NP registration status can work or volunteer as an NP in B.C. 
  • If you worked in another jurisdiction, after you apply to change your CRNBC registration​ status, we'll send you forms that need to be completed by your employer(s) and regulatory body/bodies.
  • When did you last hold practising registration? If it has been longer than 90 days then you must submit a notarized Statutory Declaration (Form 11) with your change status application. 
  • Nurse practitioners changing status to practising must meet quality assurance requirements.
