Being a nurse is a part of who you are whether you’re actively practising nursing or not. Here at CRNNS, we understand and that’s why we offer status options outside of the traditional active-practising licence: the RN (Retired) Affiliation and the Non-Practising Affiliation.

The RN (Retired) Affiliation is for you if you do not intend to practise nursing but wish to use the title “RN”.

The Non-Practising Affiliation is for you if you do not intend to practise nursing but wish to remain connected with us at CRNNS.
