It’s time to get ready for renewal
Annual Membership Renewal (AMR) will open this fall. Here’s what you need to know to ensure you are able to renew your registration by the December 31 deadline.
Do we have your email?
You are required to provide the College with an email address. The email must be one that:
you check personally on a regular basis
is personal, and not shared with others (such as a spouse or a colleague)
You must provide us with a personal email address that you check often to ensure you’ll be able to receive information about: membership renewal notices, significant regulatory developments at the College, changes to practice standards and emergency situations affecting health care workers across the province. You also need it to access the Maintain Your Membership section of our website.
New registrants should not use their school email address. Nursing school emails often expire after graduation.
For more information about how the College uses your email address and why it is required, visit www.cno.org/emailfaq.
Changes to payment options
As of June 1, 2017, the College no longer accepts payment by cheque or money order for any service, including membership renewal. You will be able to complete your 2018 renewal and pay your fee online. The College accepts the following forms of payment:
Credit card (Visa, MasterCard and American Express)
Debit (Visa Debit and MasterCard Debit)
Interac Online (Scotiabank, Canada Trust, Bank of Montreal or Royal Bank)
If you are unable or prefer not to use a credit card for online payments, a prepaid credit or debit card is a secure and convenient alternative. These cards can be purchased at many major retailers and Canada Post.
AMR will launch this fall; look for more information about AMR in the October issue of The Standard.
