Proof Of Identity

In order to assess your eligibility to register to practise nursing in Canada you must provide specific documents to NNAS that confirm your identity. Please ensure that your complete name on your application form is exactly the same as your current legal name that appears on your passport and other legal documents.

If your current legal name is different from your name as it appears on your nursing registration, education, employment or other document, you must also provide documentation, such as a marriage certificate, that supports your change in name.

Once you have completed the application process, an exact list of acceptable documentation will be provided.

Note that if you are already registered in Canada, you do not need to apply through the NNAS to be registered in any other province, in the same nursing group.
