Canadian Nurses Protective Society (CNPS) Fee

The Canadian Nurses Protective Society provides you with professional liability protection, as well as offers legal advice, risk management services and legal assistance. This fee is now paid directly to CNPS through a redirect at renewal on MyCRNNL.ca

CCRNR/NCSBN Fee

The fees to these organizations are NOT based on membership numbers but rather an annual single flat rate is charged to be part of these important organizations.

Canadian Council of Registered Nurse Regulators (CCRNR), formed in 2011 to promote excellence in professional nursing regulation, is an organization made up of representatives from Canada’s 12 provincial/territorial bodies that regulate the practice of registered nurses. CCRNR serves as a national forum and voice regarding interprovincial/territorial, national and global regulatory matters for nursing regulation.

National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) is an independent, not-for-profit organization through which boards of nursing act and counsel together on matters of common interest and concern affecting public health, safety and welfare, including the development of nursing licensure examinations.

Global Member Services

Each year $1 of your registration fee goes to the Global Member Services restricted fund used for the purpose of facilitating services/offerings that are available to all members (e.g., virtual AGM).

Ways and Means Reserve

Every year, $1 of your registration fee goes towards accumulating funds for the purpose of facilitating and maintaining member services through the College website.

Trust Membership

The Newfoundland & Labrador Registered Nurses’ Education & Research Trust is a registered charitable foundation, established in 1986, to promote, support and assist basic nursing education, continuing nursing education and nursing research. Your membership fee helps ensure the financial stability of the Trust and entitles you to apply for Trust scholarships and bursaries.
