Make sure to renew membership, as deadline approaches

CNO’s Annual Membership Renewal (AMR) is well underway, with just over two weeks until the deadline.

All nurses in Ontario are required to renew their registration for 2023 by 11:59 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 31, 2022. It doesn't take long to renew: The average time is just over 10 minutes. As of Dec. 4, 19,968 nurses have renewed their membership, giving themselves one less thing to worry about for the rest of the year and ensuring they can legally practice as a nurse in 2023.
