Reactivation of Registration

A Reactivation of Registration is required by any applicant who was previously registered as a practionner in New Brunswick and who has allowed their registration status to lapse, or has had a period of time where they have been out of active practice. The purpose of this process is to ensure all practitioners being reactivated meet the current educational and clinical competency standard in effect at the time of reactivation. These applications will be considered and are dependent on the period of time their status has lapsed. Please refer to the Reactivation policy below.

Active status: Each medic needs to complete 144 hours of active clinical practice, have 30 patient contacts per year, complete their self-assessment and learning plan and pay their registration fee.

Inactive status: any medic that has not completed 144 hours of active clinical practice per year and have a minimum of 30 patient contacts within one calendar, but have completed their self-assessment, learning plan and pay their registration fee. Inactive members will receive an ID card with inactive written on the card upon their registration being reviewed by the registrar as well as an explanatory letter.

The Inactive status model below shows the 3 different levels of inactivity PANB considers and what members need to do to gain their Active status again.
