Renewal Readiness: What Is Renewal?

May 17, 2024

Renewal is an annual process for registrants of the College of Registered Nurses of Alberta (CRNA) who want to continue to practise in the province.

A successful permit renewal allows a registrant to practise under their protected title or designation for another practice year. The CRNA's practice year runs from Oct. 1 to Sept. 30.

Registrants complete their application to renew through Collect Connect, an online portal that provides them access to their application any time, anywhere and on any device.

This year, renewal opens on Aug. 1, 2024 and closes on Sept. 30, 2024.

To successfully renew, registrants must meet all of the requirements. If a permit is denied or lapses due to non-renewal, the individual can no longer work under a protected title or designation in Alberta. The CRNA will inform employers of the lapsed statuses.

The CRNA makes the register available for the public to search. The search tool allows anyone to confirm an individual’s registration and permit status.
