Former Manitoba Registered Psychiatric Nurses (RPNs) may apply for reinstatement to the Registered Psychiatric Nurseregister if they continue to meet the practice hours requirement. A minimum of 1400 hours of practice in the immediately preceding five-year period is required to maintain eligibility for registration as a Registered Psychiatric Nurse. A summary of your practice hours can be found in your Member Portal.
The member login instructions can be found here. If you require assistance, please contact us at 204-888-4841 extension 101.
Former RPNs who have recently completed the Psychiatric Nursing Refresher Program may also apply for reinstatement.
Criminal Records, Child and Adult Abuse Registry Checks Required
Applicants for reinstatement must provide a criminal records check that includes a Vulnerable Sector Search, that is current within 6 months. Winnipeg residents click here; Brandon residents click here. If you live outside of Winnipeg or Brandon, contact your local RCMP detachment.
Reinstatement applications are subject to a reinstatement fee in addition to the current year’s Registered Psychiatric Nurse registration fee. The reinstatement fee does not apply to recent graduates of the Psychiatric Nursing Refresher Program.
The CRPNM By-Laws have provisions for the prorating of fees based on a formula that divides the year into quarters. Practising registration fees are prorated based on the date that the applicant is entered on, or returns, to the register. Learn more about the fee schedule here.
All Practising Registered Psychiatric Nurses in Manitoba are required to have beneficiary status with the Canadian Nurses Protective Society (CNPS), so that they may have access to the required amount and type of Professional Liability Protection (PLP). More information about the Professional Liability Protection and CNPS can be found here.
Persons practising while not on the Registered Psychiatric Nurse register having used the title which is restricted to practising members and having held themselves out to be qualified to practice as a Registered Psychiatric Nurse, may be subject to unauthorized practice fee and referral to the College’s Complaints Investigation Committee.
