If you are planning on leaving or returning to practice during or shortly after the renewal period, there are specific dates and deadlines to be aware of.
No. However, you can use the follow titles depending on your qualifications:
If you leave practice and become a non-practising or former registrant, you no longer have prescribing authority. Refills and part-fills on existing prescriptions will no longer be valid. It is your obligation to set a plan for patients in your care to obtain valid prescriptions from a different provider.
Check with your employer and/or disability insurance company before you make changes to your status. Some disability carriers or employers may require you to maintain practising or non-practising registration to receive benefits.
If you are a former or non-practising BCCNM registrant, you must submit a reinstatement application to return to nursing practice. Please submit your reinstatement application at least
one month before your estimated return to work date.
