Registration Online Registration 2013-14
Annual Licensure/Membership Renewal Deadline Has Passed - March 31
Note: To help you navigate online registration more quickly, ARNNL encourages you to utilize several online resources: Frequently Asked Questions, a 'help' feature with the online registration module, and live online support.
If you missed the deadline, your license/membership has expired. If you are currently employed as a registered nurse, you are not permitted to practice until you renew a practicing license for this licensure year, which commenced on April 1. Your application will be temporarily halted until ARNNL determines the appropriate fee you are required to pay for Registration Renewal. Late and/or penalty fees may be applied to the licensure/membership fee in accordance with ARNNL By-Law, Article II, Section II.
If you have discontinued your nursing practice and wish to maintain your membership, you may renew as a non-practicing member. Members who no longer wish to stay in contact with ARNNL may resign their membership by notifying ARNNL at firstname.lastname@example.org
Going Paperless in 2013-14: ARNNL Moving to 100% Online Registration Renewal
ARNNL wishes to inform members that beginning in the 2013-14 licensure year, ARNNL will no longer mail hard copy (paper) license renewal applications. Members wishing to renew their annual practicing license or membership will be required to complete the process online. Moving to a paperless renewal system is considered to be best practice and is environmentally responsible.

In addition, beginning in 2013-14 licensure year, ARNNL will no longer provide paper license/membership cards to members. Members and employers can verify the status of their license and/or membership through the RN Member Search and NP Member Search feature available through the ARNNL website.
Members must have a valid email address on file with ARNNL to renew their practicing license and/or non-practicing membership. If you do not have an email address, you will be required to create an email account. To update your email address with ARNNL, members can visit the online registration renewal website or the ‘Member Self-Service’ tab on the ARNNL homepage. Members can access the member self-service site 24/7 to update their email address and contact information. To log in you will require your ARNNL registration number and password. If you do not know your password, click on the ‘Forgot your Password’ link and follow the steps. Your password will be sent to you electronically in two to three business days.
ARNNL’s online registration system is available to members who are:
• Renewing their annual practicing license and/or non-practicing membership;
• Non-practicing and wish to update to a practicing license during the licensure year, and
• Currently registered and wish to update their contact information, including mailing address and email.
• NL graduates who have successfully completed the CRNE and wish to apply for initial licensure/membership.
Additional online modules are presently under development.
To help you navigate the online renewal module, ARNNL has developed several resources, including: a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) document, a ‘help’ feature within the online module, and live online support.
• Ensure you have an up-to-date email address on file with ARNNL.
• You can retrieve your password by clicking on the “Forgot your Password” link and follow the instructions (see FAQ’s for additional information).
• Members who are enrolled in payroll deduction through their employer can renew online.
• Payment options, available to members include VISA, MasterCard and Interac.
ARNNL has made changes to the payroll deduction process for 2013-14. Members will no longer be required to submit paper forms or a copy of their confirmation email to their employer. The employer will forward to ARNNL the names and fees (RN: $480 and NP: $536.50) of those members for whom they have deducted the full licensure fee before the online registration system opens on Jan. 16, 2013. If ARNNL has received your licensure fee from your employer, you will be notified that your fee has been received when you submit your renewal application online. If ARNNL has not received your full licensure fee, you will be required to pay online.
Verified by Visa® password
Verified by Visa® is a program designed by Visa to make online purchases more secure. Your Verified by Visa® password is a unique password created by the individual card holder. This password is not the same as your password to log on to the ARNNL Online Registration site. If you have a problem with your Verified by Visa® password, you must contact your Visa Customer Service.

Submission of hours
All Regional Health Authorities (RHAs) have agreed to electronically submit hours of nursing practice to ARNNL. Members not employed with one of these RHAs must continue to submit official documentation of their nursing practice hours to ARNNL, as in previous years. Members can scan and email confirmation of hours to ARNNL at email@example.com, fax 709-753-4940, or send via regular mail. Be sure to include your ARNNL Registration number on your confirmation of hours so they can be correctly entered on your file.
