Renew Annual Licence

Every year, all nurses are required to renew their licence. This process is to ensure only nurses qualified to practise nursing are able to do so in Nova Scotia. 

Our goal is to review, process and renew all annual nursing licences in a timely and efficient way. 

Licence renewal will open on August 1 for the 2020 licensure year.  Please re-visit this webpage after August 1 for more details about how to renew your licence.
