Practicing without a valid licensure is a breach of the Registered Nurse Act (2008) and the Registered Nurses Regulations (2013) may result in disciplinary actions.

Lapsed Membership Fee: $46.00
As a self-regulated profession, CRNNL is required to meet its legislated requirements under the Registered Nurses Act. These requirements require the administration of a number of programs on an annual and ongoing basis. The programs include, but are not limited to, annual licensure renewal, a professional conduct review process and the continuing competence program. The costs of these programs are covered by membership fees. As well, the practicing licensure fee covers the costs of a number of member benefits (e.g., Canadian Nurses Association membership, CRNNL Education and Research Trust). All these services, which are available to each registered nurse if you practice one day or 365 days in the year, are paid out by CRNNL for each member and are non-recoverable. Therefore, to ensure effective budget planning and that the total membership has access to the values of licensure, once the effective date for a practicing/interim license or non-practicing membership has passed, a refund cannot be issued. In addition, application and other service fees (e.g., provisional registration application fee, NP eligibility application fee), once processed by CRNNL will not be refunded.
