If you are a student who is in the final term of the psychiatric nursing education program and who has started, or is about to start, the final practicum of the program, you must establish eligibility for registration with the CRPNM prior to applying to write the Registered Psychiatric Nurses Registration Examination (RPNCE).

Subsection 2.6(1) of the College’s General Regulation identifies the documents and the information the College needs to assess your application.
Click on the Applicant Portal link to start your application. Some of the information we require will be captured on the application form. The collection or confirmation of other information, such as the information about your psychiatric nursing education program completion, is collected through the Confirmation of Program Completion form found below.
Once you have submitted the application, an acknowledging e-mail will be sent to you. A list of all the documents we require will also be provided. The CRPNM will assess your eligibility for registration once we have received all of the required documents.
