Caring for a family member

Q: I have been off work, providing sole care for an aging parent.  I’m now renewing my certificate of registration as a Registered Nurse. Can I use my nursing care for a family member to satisfy the evidence-of-practice requirement?

A: No, time spent caring for a friend or family member is not recognized by CNO as evidence of recent nursing practice when completing the Declaration of Practice
