Registered Psychiatric Nurses, Partnering with People

What steps do I have to take to become initially “registered” and “licensed” to practice as a registered psychiatric nurse?

The Act and Bylaws of the RPNAS require that you produce satisfactory evidence of the following that:

  • You have successfully completed an approved psychiatric nursing education program
  • You have passed the registration examination within a four year period following graduation
  • You have provided a current criminal record check
  • You have complied with the registration bylaws which require that you complete the forms, pay the required fees and provide the required documentation.
