How to Become a CNPS Beneficiary When You Graduate
In most Canadian jurisdictions, nursing graduates who have been granted a provisional or temporary RN licence automatically become CNPS beneficiaries through their provincial or territorial nursing regulator. In Ontario, Quebec and Manitoba* nursing graduates can join the CNPS as an individual beneficiary.
*Note: Manitoba RNs and NPs are required to be CNPS beneficiaries. Manitoba nurses can become a CNPS beneficiary by joining the Association of Regulated Nurses of Manitoba (ARNM) at the preferred CNPS member rate, or by becoming an individual beneficiary of CNPS.
