This easy-to-use tool shows if there are conditions or restrictions on an RN’s practice. It also shows his/her registration expiry date.
Anyone can verify the registration of a:
- registered nurse RN
- nurse practitioner RN(NP)
- graduate nurse GN
- graduate nurse practitioner RN(GNP)
Under the Registered Nurses Act and Regulation, we are required to have a register available to the public. Online public registers are considered best practice in the regulation of health professionals because this method:
- minimizes the risk of illegal practitioners fraudulently obtaining employment; and
- is a more accessible way to check a professional’s registration status.
Verification requests are processed in real-time based on information contained in our database. A short processing delay may occur between the time an individual applies for registration until approval is granted and the information is entered into the register. If you believe there are any discrepancies between Nurse Check results and your records, please contact us immediately.
