New Graduate

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., transcripts, references, etc.) are added to an applicant's file as they are received at the office. When all required documents are received, the Registration Committee reviews the entire application for registration eligibility and approval. 

Once an application is approved by the Registration Committee, the applicant is contacted by phone or email.

Please note: It is a registration violation to be employed as a graduate nurse or graduate nurse practitioner without a valid license to practice in the NT and/or NU. This includes any orientation, as well as the completion of any employer requirements. When a temporary certificate application is approved, the applicant is contacted by email.
