Renew your registration now to continue practicing nursing in 2024

Pay your fees by Dec. 31

Annual Membership Renewal (AMR) is now open.

As a regulator for the largest group of health care providers in Canada, CNO has a proud 60-year history of influencing the patient-safety agenda in Ontario and self-regulating in the public interest.

As a nurse in Ontario, when you renew your registration with CNO, you are able to practice nursing in the province for the next calendar year.

“Fees support our core work to regulate nursing in the public interest,” said Chief Administrative Officer Stephen Mills. “Renewal means we can sustainably take on the work we do to maintain public confidence and safety – we all play an important role in that mandate, and we thank nurses for doing so.”

Your fees support the important work of protecting the public by promoting safe nursing practice because you are helping to

  • maintain the registration of approximately 180,000 nurses who were actively practicing in 2023

  • provide safe and high-quality care to patients by engaging in quality assurance activities that promote self-reflection and life-long learning throughout your careers

  • maintain the voluntary bilingual Nurses’ Health Program for Ontario nurses designed to encourage them to seek treatment for substance use and/or mental health disorders that may affect their ability to practice nursing safely

  • sustain core regulatory functions, establish requirements for entry to practice, enforce standards of practice and conduct, articulate and promote practice standards

These are just a few examples of how you are helping CNO respond to the evolving needs of the health care system, while building innovative and sustainable solutions for now and into the future.
