Some students who have completed the program chose not to apply to the Graduate register. You are not required to register as a Graduate Psychiatric Nurse but you will not be able to practice until you have completed and passed the RPNCE and are on the Practising register.
Once you have passed the RPNCE, you will be eligible for the Practising register. You will need to apply to the Practising register within four (4) years of completing the psychiatric nursing education program to remain eligible.
Please contact the CRPNM if you wish to discuss the registration options and to request the Practising Registration Application form.
