Fee Structure

Practice permits represent an effectively regulated, advancing, and progressive profession. The College of Registered Nurses of Alberta (CRNA) exists to assure the Alberta public that registrants provide safe, competent, ethical nursing care and excellence in nursing practice. Practice permit fees cover the costs of this regulatory process.

The Canadian Nurses Protective Society (CNPS) provides registrants with professional liability protection, legal advice, risk management services and legal assistance. The fees collected by the CRNA and paid to CNPS cover these services. In 2021, CNPS increased their fee by $20 for registered nurses (RN), bringing current fees to $68 (+GST) for RNs and $159.50 (+GST) for nurse practitioners (NP) per practice year. The fee charged for NPs did not increase.

For the current permit year (permits expiring September 30, 2022), the CRNA has absorbed the $20 increase for CNPS coverage for RNs and did not pass that cost on to registrants. Accordingly, all CNPS fee calculations below for RNs show $50.40 as the CNPS fee (based on the previous rate of $48 +GST).    

The Registered Nurses Profession Regulation requires registrants to have professional liability protection to practice in Alberta. More information will be made available in the near future on how registrants will obtain professional liability protection for the 2022-2023 practice year.
