Our 2018 Renewal Period runs from September 1st, 2017 to October 31st, 2017.

An individual must hold a current certificate of registration (license) issued by the Registered Nurses Association of the Northwest Territories and Nunavut (RNANT/NU) to legally work as a Registered Nurse or Nurse Practitioner in the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. Registration is valid from January 1st to December 31st of the current year.

All renewal applications must be received by October 31st to avoid a late submission fee of $100 + 5% GST. If your renewal application is not received by October 31st, 2017 your application may not be processed in time for you to commence work on January 1st, 2018.

The following are required to renew your registration as an RN, NP, or Associate Non-Practicing Member:
