What's new for renewal 2024-25: Nursing professionals

Jan 2, 2024

​Registration renewal starts on February 1, 2024. Here are some things you need to know before you renew:

Important: Last day of renewal and statutory holidays

Registration renewal will end on Sunday, March 31 at 4:30 p.m. Due to statutory holidays, BCCNM offices will be closed on Friday, March 29 and Monday, April 1. While the renewal system will remain open until the registration renewal period closes, there will be no BCCNM staff available from March 29-April 1 to assist you with renewal questions or technical challenges.   

We strongly recommend completing your renewal before March 27 to ensure your renewal is finalized in advance of the office closure. If you do not complete your renewal before the deadline, your registration will expire. You will need to apply to reinstate your registration ($265+GST) in addition to paying your registration fees. If you work without registration, you will not be covered for liability protection while unregistered and you will be subject to an additional $375+GST surcharge.

2024-25 BCCNM fees

BCCNM registration fees for 2024-25 were announced in Dec. 2023; view the fee summaries for each nursing designation.

Nursing association fees (optional)

BCCNM registrants have the option of purchasing Nurses and Nurse Practitioners of BC (NNPBC) membership during registration renewal. In 2024, NNPBC’s membership fee will increase to $51.00. NPs, RNs, and RPNs only: NNPBC membership can be bundled with your CNPS professional liability protection. Learn about NNPBC fees for 2024-25

NPs, RNs and RPNs: Converting to non-practising during renewal

Practising NPs, RNs​ and RPNs can now convert to non-practising registration on their renewal application. This change helps avoid the need for an additional application and fees, and aligns the renewal applications for nursing professionals (LPNs are already able to convert to non-practising on their renewal application). ​

Multisource feedback for LPNs and RPNs​

In 2024, LPNs and RPNs will start participating in the multisource feedback process, a Quality Assurance requirement that RNs and NPs already participate in. If 2024 is your year to complete multisource feedback, you’ll receive an email notification in January. Learn more about multisource feedback.

NPs only: Quality Assurance changes 

Nurse practitioners will now set, complete and evaluate a minimum of two learning goals a year, rather than being required to choose professional development activities from a pre-determined list. You are encouraged to use your self-assessment and peer feedback to evaluate the impact of your learning on your practice. Learn more about annual Quality Assurance requirements for NPs.

Nurses’ Bargaining Association members only: Reimbursement of BCCNM registration fees

BCCNM registrants who are also members of the Nurses’ Bargaining Association are eligible for reimbursement of their BCCNM registration fee (please note: reimbursement does not include CNPS or NNPBC fees). This process will be managed by employers; BCCNM has no additional information available. Registration renewal receipts will be automatically sent to your email address after you complete your renewal. Receipts are also available through your BCCNM account
