Verification Process

Print this page

In May, 100 randomly selected nurses were chosen to submit their learning plan to CRNNS for verification.  The verification process is considered best practice for nursing regulators both in Canada and internationally because it helps to ensure that nurses are engaged in continuing competence.

Members were notified by email on May 12 if they were chosen for verification. If you did not receive an email notification this date, you were not chosen for verification and do not need to complete this component. However, you are still required to develop a learning plan for your own personal use and complete the program’s mandatory education.

If you were chosen for verification however, please watch this short animated video and continue reading to learn more about the verification process.

Verification Process

The verification process has been created with you, the nurse in mind to ensure that the timelines are realistic and practical given today’s competing priorities. If you are one of the 100 nurses selected for verification:

  1. You will be notified electronically at the end of May, 2017.
  2. You will be required to send your learning plan to CRNNS by September 5, 2017.
  3. CRNNS staff will review your learning plan against the CCP criteria. If your learning plan:
    1. Meets the criteria, the verification process will be complete and you will receive written notification of your successful completion.
    2. Does not meet the criteria, CRNNS staff will submit your learning plan to the CCP Advisory Committee after all personal identifiers have been removed.
  4. The CCP Advisory Committee will review your learning plan against the CCP criteria. If your learning plan:
    1. Meets the criteria, the verification process will be complete and you will receive written notification of your successful completion.
    2. Does not meet the criteria, you will receive written feedback to assist you in revising your learning plan. You will then be required to re-submit your learning plan. CRNNS staff will be available to assist you with your revisions.
  5. You will submit your revised learning plan to CRNNS who will remove all personal identifiers and re-send to the CCP Advisory Committee for a second review. You will be required to re-submit your learning plan until it has been approved by the CCP Advisory Committee.

Advisory Committee

Throughout the verification process, there is active participation from members of the CCP Advisory Committee composed of CRNNS members who hold an active-practising licence and are in good standing.

The role of the Advisory Committee is twofold: to recommend topics for mandatory education and to review any learning plans that have been identified by CRNNS staff as possibly not having met the learning plan criteria. For more information on the role of the committee, please download the committee’s official Terms of Reference.
