Working Together in Alberta's Health Care Ecosystem

The College of Registered Nurses of Alberta (CRNA) is committed to excellence in nursing regulation for the health of all Albertans. As a part of this, we work closely with employers and other collaborators to ensure that only licensed individuals are practising nursing using the following protected titles:

  • Registered nurse (RN)
  • Certified graduate nurse (CGN)
  • Nurse practitioner (NP)
  • Graduate nurse (GN)
  • Graduate nurse practitioner (GNP)

Through our relationship with Alberta employers, we are ensuring that Albertans can trust the care and services they receive from our registrants.

Frequently Asked Questions

Employers have a responsibility to ensure that their employees have an active permit and are practising in a safe, competent and ethical manner.

Any member of the public can look up an individual's registration and permit status using the Find a Nurse tool on our website. This tool also shows any conditions or authorizations that may be attached to a permit.

Employers also have access to an Employer Lookup that allows them to check on the status of multiple Individuals at once, and emails the results of searches directly.

The CRNA's practice year runs from Oct. 1 - Sept. 30, every year. Permits are valid for the duration of the practice year, with the exception of graduate nurse (GN) and graduate nurse practitioner (GNP) permits which expire after six months on March 31 and Sept. 30.

Employers have an obligation to report any employees licensed by the CRNA who are not meeting the standards that apply to their practice. All complaints received by the CRNA are reviewed according to our complaints management process.
