At the College of Registered Nurses of Alberta (CRNA), we understand the importance of timely and efficient processing of supporting documents related to applications to ensure that nurses can show they meet our requirements and can obtain their permits in a timely manner.
We receive documents from applicants and registrants in a variety of ways, including by fax, email, mail and in person. We understand that applicants and other regulators have different preferences when it comes to submitting supporting documents, and we are committed to accommodating these preferences as much as possible.
At the same time, we are currently experiencing an unprecedented volume of applications and the associated supporting documents. We want applicants to know that we are processing these documents as quickly as possible once received. Some regulators and credentialling agencies take time to issue these documents and don't send copies digitally, which can impact our processing times.
Registrants who require a verification of registration from the CRNA can receive one securely and quickly by using the self-service "Request a Verification" feature in College Connect. There is no cost to provide this verification digitally.
We want registrants and applicants to be assured that we are doing everything we can to process their applications and supporting documents as quickly as possible. We recognize the importance of qualified applicants being able to obtain their permits and start working as soon as possible, for the benefit of all Albertans.
