We acknowledge that Manitoba is on the original lands of the Dakota, Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, Dené, Inuit and Métis Nation. We acknowledge that the College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of Manitoba is located on Treaty One territory. We respect the Treaties that were made on these territories, and we acknowledge the harms and mistakes of the past. We dedicate ourselves to moving forward in partnership with First Nations, Métis, and Inuit communities in a spirit of reconciliation and collaboration.

Reinstatement for Former Members

Returning/Reinstating Members

Former Manitoba registered psychiatric nurses who have practiced in the last 5 years and were in good standing with the College may apply for reinstatement to the Registered Psychiatric Nurse membership class and/or for a new certificate of practice if they meet:

  • A minimum of 1400 hours of practice in the immediately preceding five-year period; or,
  • A minimum of 560 hours in the immediately preceding two-year period. (NEW)

Applicants who have at least 1100 hours of practice in the immediately preceding 5-year period who otherwise meet the requirements for registration and/or a certificate of practice must be willing to enter into an agreement with the College that provides evidence of safe and competent practice and until the 1400-hour practice hour requirement is met. The CRPNM’s expanded policy outlines the requirements.

Pathway for Returning/Reinstating Members

Your self-reported practice hours can be found in your Member Portal.  To expedite the process applicants are also encouraged to initiate their application for a criminal records check (with a vulnerable sector search) and the adult and child abuse registry checks (collectively the “Background Checks”).

Former Manitoba RPNs who are currently registered in another Canadian jurisdiction are asked to contact the CRPNM at crpnm@crpnm.mb.ca for instructions to apply.

Professional Liability Protection (PLP)

All 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). The CNPS fees are paid on initial registration and when a certificate of practice is renewed. The fee for professional liability protection (PLP) is set by CNPS.

More information about the Professional Liability Protection and CNPS can be found here.
