2024-25 fees: Registered psychiatric nurses

Dec 6, 2023

The BCCNM Board recently approved fees for the 2024-25 registration year. A summary of fee changes is provided below; check the fees page for a full list of fees for registered psychiatric nurses (RPNs).

In 2024-25, practising RNs will pay $671.60 in BCCNM registration fees. The non-practising registrant fee will be $124.10. This is an increase of 12%.

Practising registrants will also pay for CNPS professional liability protection and Nurses and Nurse Practitioners of BC  membership (optional) during registration renewal.​

​Why are fees increasing? 

Who determines BCCNM fees?
BCCNM fee decisions are made by the BCCNM Board, who work with college leadership to use its resources wisely and ensure that BCCNM is able to effectively meet its mandate.
What do BCCNM registration fees pay for?
Registrant fees fund the work of the college in fulfilling its mandate to protect the public. Our core work includes:
  • ​​Scope of practice and standards: We determine the scope, professional standards and practice standards. To meet changes in the health-care landscape, existing standards must be reviewed and updated regularly, and new standards developed. 
  • Education program review and recognition: We review and recognize education programs in BC to ensure new graduates can practise safely, competently, and ethically. 
  • Registration: We establish the requirements for registration and assess applicants to determine if they meet those requirements.  
  • Continued competence: We maintain a quality assurance program that promotes continued competence throughout the career of a nursing professional or midwife.
  • Investigating complaints: We investigate and take action to resolve complaints related to registrant practice.
Fee reimbursement for Nurses Bargaining Association members
Registrants who are also members of the Nurses Bargaining Association are eligible for reimbursement of their BCCNM registration fee. This process will be managed by employers; BCCNM has no additional information available. Please note: fees for CNPS professional liability protection and NNPBC membership (optional) are not eligible for reimbursement.

​After you complete and submit your renewal application, a payment receipt will automatically be sent to your email address on record with BCCNM. You can also update your contact information and access payment receipts in your BCCNM account
