Meeting CCP

Print this page

Meeting the four components of the Continuing Competence Program (CCP) is one requirement of licensure with CRNNS. If you are unable to meet one or more of the CCP components, you will be granted a time-limited licence.

Time-Limited Licence

You will be issued a time-limited licence for up to three months, with or without conditions and/or restrictions, if you apply for a licence and one of the following occurs:

  1. You do not confirm on your application for initial or annual licensure that you have completed a learning plan based on your self-assessment; or
  2. You have not successfully completed the mandatory education post-quiz.

Your time-limited licence will then expire at the earliest of these three scenarios:

  1. When you provide CRNNS with evidence that you have met the criteria.
    • Example: if you mistakenly indicate that you did not complete CCP on your application but provide CRNNS with evidence that you actually have.
  2. Three months after it was issued.
    • Example: If you receive a time-limited licence on November 1, the licence will expire on February 1.
  3. On October 31 of the licensure year for which the time-limited licence was issued.
    • Example: If you received a time-limited licence on September 15, the licence will expire on October 31 since that is the last day of the licensure year.

Have a Question?

If you have a question about CCP, please read the general CCP FAQ. Here you will find a broad range of questions related to the overall program.


As part of the licence application, you will be required to indicate that you have remained connected and current to nursing practice. This is usually demonstrated by reporting your recent nursing practice hours or the date you have completed your nursing program. Click here to verify that you meet this licensure requirement.
