RN Reinstatement

PLEASE NOTE: It is the members responsibility to keep RNANT/NU updated on changes to their name, email, phone or address. 

The RN Reinstatement Application is for:

  • an applicant who was previously registered with the RNANT/NU to practice as a Registered Nurse and who wishes to reinstate their registration, and 
  • an application who is currently registered as an Associate Non-Practicing Member with the RNANT/NU and who wishes to obtain an active practicing membership as an RN.

Please note: It is a registration violation to be employed in the NT and/or the NU as a registered nurse without a valid license to practice in the NT and/or NU. This includes any orientation to an individual's role as an RN, as well as the completion of any employer requirements.

A $65.63 processing fee is charged to an applicant's credit card upon receipt of the payment authorization form. This payment authorization form is required to begin processing an application. Other documents (e.g. verification letters, references, ect.) are added to an applicant's file as they are received at the office. When all required documents are received, the Registrar reviews the entire application for registration eligibility and approval.

Once an application is approved by the Registrar, the applicant is contacted by phone or email. Approval application are valid for six months from the date the application is submitted, and the processing fee is taken. After six months, the applicant is required to submit a new application.
