The Continuing Competence Program (CCP) is a regulatory program that supports nurses to determine their learning needs, explore their accountability as self-regulated professionals and develop a learning plan to facilitate their ongoing continuing competence.
The CCP requirements apply to all RNs and NPs renewing their licence and all applicants seeking licensure except for those applying for a temporary licence given the nature and length of this licence.
In 2018, nurses must meet the following CCP requirements in order to be eligible for an active-practising licence:
There are resources available online to help you meet each of the CCP requirements. Follow the click here instructions and blue highlighted words to explore the CCP resources online. The CRNNS staff are also available to support you through this process. Visit the Frequently-Asked Questions or reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Once you have met all CCP requirements, you are eligible to apply for an active-practising licence with CRNNS. If you are unable to meet one or more of the requirements, you will be granted a time-limited active-practising licence, which will allow you to work for up to three months while you complete the remaining requirements.
