Reactivation of Registration

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 have completed 64 approved educational credits within 1 calender year, hold a valid CPR-HCP certification, complete the on-line education module, show proof of liability insurance in the amount required by the By-laws, complete the demographic information, and pay their registration fee.

Inactive status: any medic that has not completed 64 approved educational credits within one calendar, but hold a valid CPR-HCP certification, completed the on-line education module, show proof of liability insurance in the amount required by the By-laws, complete the demographic information, 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.
