Certification Renewal

The "Renewal" and "Inactive Status" Applications have been launched!

February 11, 2022

Great news! We have launched the certification renewal application by continuous learning and inactive status application.

Certified nurses that didn't get a chance to renew before we closed the application last October can renew by continuous learning as of February 10th until April 1st, 2022. Between now and February 28th, they will be able to renew without paying the late fee. From March 1st to April 1st, 2022, they will still be able to renew and will be charged the late fee of $99 plus sales tax. They will also be able to use the 2021 discount voucher until April 1st. Once you have given them the voucher code (after confirming they are members), let them know to e-mail certification@cna-aiic.ca with a request to refund the value of the discount from the voucher code.

Nurses due to renew in 2022 can start submitting their certification renewal by continuous learning application as well. They will have until November 1, 2022, to submit their certification renewal applications.

Information on renewing by continuous learning is on our website: https://www.cna-aiic.ca/en/certification/renewing-your-certification/renewal-by-continuous-learning

The certified nurses that are CNA members will be charged the member rate of $317 plus sales tax. Certified nurses that are not CNA members will be charged the non-member reate of $420 plus tax. Certified nurses will be able to apply for inactive status and the fee of $175 plus tax. Details on the Inactive status can be found in the Certification Policies section: https://www.cna-aiic.ca/en/certification/certification-policies/certification-inactive-status.

We are still working on the certification application for to write the certification exam and will let you know when that application is launched. Nurses who want to renew by exam or rewrite the exam will need to wait until the certification application to write the exam is available.

Key takeaways:

  • Certified nurses that are not CNA members can join CNA and save on their renewal fees!
  • If the nurse has a problem logging into their online account, they should send an e-mail to members@cna-aiic.ca.
  • If the nurse has any issues with their certification, they should send an e-mail to certification@cna-aiic.ca.
