NP Competency Validation Process

Nurse Practitioner (NP) registrants who no longer meet the currency of practice hours requirement for renewal of an NP practicing license, under Section 8 of the RN Regulations, are required to complete the NP Competency Validation Process (NPCVP) approved by the College Council. The Registrant must be eligible for and hold an RN Practicing licence to commence the NPCVP.

Registrants must submit an application to the College and be approved prior to commencing.

Upon completion of the NPCVP, the Registrant will be eligible to re-apply for NP licensure. Note: Some Registrants may be required to successfully complete an NP licensure exam prior to being eligible for NP licensure. For questions related to the NPCVP, please contact [email protected]
