Reactivation of Registration

Written by

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.

General Registration Information

Written by

General Registration Information

PANB is responsible for licensure of all paramedic practionners within New Brunswick and to ensure that they meet all necessary registration and continuing registration requirements as per the Paramedic Act and Bylaws.

Currently PANB is registers both Primary Care Paramedic and Advanced Care Paramedic Practioners. We are no longer registering Emergency Medical Technicians as new practioners in New Brunswick but do honor the registration of those already licensed within our jurisdiction.

There are four types of Registration Requests considered by the Association.
• New Registration
• Reactivation of Registration
• Registration from another Canadian Jurisdiction
• Registration from another Jurisdiction (other than Canada)

Depending on the type of Registrant, the information required in order for the application to be considered varies greatly. Each registration type now contains a link to a package detailing each component that is required in order to process your regsitration. Please make sure you choose the proper level of document as each document has been created for a PCP or ACP dependant on the registrant's current practice level.

However, regardless of what type of registration an applicant is seeking, most applicants are required to complete the Paramedic Integration Process.

*** Please note that PANB accepts payments made by credit/debit/money order - cash or personal cheques are not accepted.
