The CRPNM online registration verification system assists employers in meeting their obligations under section 66 of the The Registered Psychiatric Nurses Act.
Employers must ensure than any psychiatric nurse they hire is registered with the CRPNM and they must review their employees’ registration status every year.
Registered Psychiatric Nurses and Graduate Psychiatric Nurses are issued a registration certificate when they become registered and when they renew their registration each year. The registration certificate reflects the registration status at the time it was issued.
Since changes to registration may occur at any time throughout the year, employers are encouraged to use the online system to verify the registration status of their psychiatric nurse employees.
