Non-Practicing Membership

Non-practicing membership allows individuals to:

  1. Stay connected with the College
  2. Receive College Communications
  3. Vote at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the College.
  4. Trust Membership (OPTIONAL) – The Newfoundland and Labrador Registered Nurses’ Education & Research Trust is a registered charitable foundation to promote support and assist basic nursing education, continuing nursing education and nursing research.  Your $10 membership fee helps ensure the financial stability of the Trust and entitles you to apply for Trust scholarships and bursaries.

Registrants who hold a non-practicing membership and plan to return to practice are reminded that:

  • Before they can renew a practicing licence they must complete the College’s Continuing Competency Program requirements. This includes logging 24 learning activity hours and summative evaluation before applying for a practicing licence. Registrants must document their learning within the ‘My Learning’ section of Member Portal. Failure to complete CCP will result in RNs/NPs being unable to renew their licence to practice.
  • Registrants who practice without a valid practicing licence will be subject to an Unauthorized Practice ($100/shift worked with a maximum fee of three times the regular licensure cost) and subject to discipline where the period of practice exceeds 3 shifts from and including the 1st shift. Applies to nursing practice in all domains (clinical, administration, education, and policy/research).

To help navigate online renewal the College encourages registrants to utilize our Frequently Asked Questions.
