NEWS & CASE STUDIES
Why should you trust the College?
We understand nurses may sometimes feel hesitant to reach out to the College. We want to change that. So, why should you trust the College? Our Registrar/CEO, Cynthia Johansen, tackles this question.
Two-thirds of certified practice nurses still need to renew
One-third of certified practice nurses have renewed their registration. The remaining group has less than four weeks left until the renewal deadline. We think certified practice nurses will find it easier to renew this year, as we recently streamlined online renewal based on nurses' feedback. Anyone who does not renew by 11:59 p.m. on February 28, 2015 will be unable to legally work as a nurse until they reinstate their registration and pay an additional reinstatement fee of $211.50.
