NURSING LICENCE RENEWALS

Renewing Your Licence

Don’t miss your provincial deadline to renew your nursing permit!  To check out when your renewal is due, see the Canadian Nursing Renewal dates below.

We do our best to keep the information below as up-to-date as possible. However, you should always consult your provinces’ nursing association website for renewal date confirmation. 

 

Practicing vs. Non-Practicing

Be wary if you choose to renew as non-practicing.  If you renew as non-practicing then decide to change to practicing later in the year, you may have to pay an admin fee twice or need to resubmit all documentation.  We strongly suggest practicing if you are thinking of taking on nursing assignments within the next year.
