Annual Membership Renewal opens Nov. 6

Annual Membership Renewal for 2020 will open on Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2019.

You must renew your membership with CNO every year to continue practicing as a nurse in Ontario.

Once renewal opens, we’ll send you an email to remind you that you can renew. We’ll also announce it in this magazine and on our Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram pages.

You’ll have until midnight on Tuesday, Dec. 31, 2019 to renew. You can renew your membership and pay your fee by logging in to Maintain Your Membership.

While renewal happens once a year, you are required to keep the information you provide up-to-date throughout the year. Update any changes to your contact information, job or business address, or any of the other registrations and licences you hold within 30 days of the change. NPs must also update any changes to their hospital or health facility privileges. You can do this quickly and easily on Maintain your Membership
