Your registration process

Before you can begin your application for registration to the Nursing Council, you will need to have your identity and documents checked and verified by an external company, CGFNS.

It is only after CGFNS has verified your documents that you will be invited to begin your registration application to the Council.

These are the steps to take:

1. Verify documents

Apply to CGFNS for verification and authentication of documents, including:

  • Your identity
  • Your current registration
  • Your nursing qualification
  • Your employment history and
  • Your language proficiency
2. Approve CGFNS sending report to the Nursing Council

When CGFNS have verified your documents, they will forward a copy of their report to you to get your approval to send it to the Nursing Council.

3. Apply for registration to the Nursing Council

Once CGFNS sends the report, you will receive an email from the Nursing Council inviting you to apply for registration. Once you have applied to the Nursing Council, your application will be assessed against the seven registration standards
