Registrant Names on the Register

April 30, 2024

Registrants of the College of Registered Nurses of Alberta (CRNA) are required to practise using their legal names, as they appear on the register. This ensures employers and the public are able to verify a registrant's permit status and ensures accountability.

Anyone can look up a specific individual to verify their permit status by searching their first and/or last name using the Find a Nurse tool.

What Information on Registrants is Publicly Available?

Publicly available information includes:

  • The full legal name of a registrant
  • The effective date of their permit
  • Any conditions or authorizations attached to their permit
  • Any information regarding disciplinary matters related to the individual

What Should I Do if I Think a Nurse is Practising Without a Permit?

If you think an individual is practising without the correct permit or you otherwise have concerns about their conduct, you can submit a complaint to the CRNA.

The CRNA works closely with both employers and registrants to ensure that only licensed individuals are practising under protected titles.
