It's that time of year again

With nearly 40,000 nurses and nurse practitioners renewing their registration this year, we recommend that you renew by February 1 to ensure that you can legally continue to practise nursing after February 28, 2015. We think you'll find the process easier this year, as we recently streamlined online renewal based on nurses' feedback.
