Instructions to the Applicant
RPNAS Application for Registration (Form R-01): This form is to be completed in the applicant’s handwriting. Proof of identity must be submitted with the completed form. RPNAS requires two (2) pieces of valid government issued ID and one copy must have a photo and signature, such as a driver’s license or passport. The most acceptable proof of identity is a copy of a birth certificate. If the current name differs from that on the birth certificate, additional valid proof of the change of name is required (e.g. marriage certificate). Please complete this form and return via email to or by mail to #205 – 4401 Albert Street, Regina, SK S4S 6B6.
Confirmation of Registration (Form R-02): Complete, sign and date section A of this form and then forward the form to your current or most recent regulatory body. The regulatory body will return the form directly to the RPNAS; to do otherwise would invalidate the form. Section B will be completed with seal and issued from the applicant’s current jurisdiction providing information on the following criteria:
- Proof of current practicing registration or eligibility for registration.
- Proof that the applicant’s registration is in good standing and/or that the name has never been removed for cause (to their knowledge) from ANY register of a regulatory body.
- Proof of practice as a REGISTERED PSYCHIATRIC NURSE for at least 1400 hours in a recognized jurisdiction during the immediately preceding five-year period.
Employment Reference (Form R-03): Complete, sign and date section A of this form and then forward the form to all employers you have been employed by for the past five (5) years. The employer(s) will return the form directly to the RPNAS; to do otherwise will invalidate the form. If the applicant has had no work experience, a reference will be needed from the Program of Psychiatric Nursing from which the applicant graduated.
Criminal Record Check with Vulnerable Sector Search: This can be obtained from a local or municipal police service or from the RCMP. Please complete and return with your R-01.
Please contact the RPNAS office to request the required forms.
Once all the appropriate information is received and all the requirements have been met, registration will be granted. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to email or call our office at (306) 586-4617.
