What You Need to Know
NANB’s mandate is regulation for safe, competent, and ethical nursing care—but patient safety is a responsibility we all share. Our role during the novel coronavirus outbreak is to support your ability to provide safe and competent care and help you understand your accountabilities.
If you have questions about your accountabilities when caring for patients affected with the new coronavirus, please contact us. One of our Nurse Consultants can help identify the appropriate standards and guidelines to guide your decision-making and help you understand your accountabilities.
Nurse Practitioners are encouraged to visit the Office of the Chief Medical Officer of Health (Public Health) Coronavirus page for information.
NANB Is Currently Accepting New Applications for Emergency Temporary Registration
Due to the rising number of COVID-19 infections in New Brunswick, and to support the Province in its COVID-19 relief efforts, NANB is once again opening its Emergency Temporary Registration Process to new applicants.
If you are current in your nursing practice (have practiced a minimum of 1125 hours in the last 5 years), are a former member in good standing with NANB, wish to assist the Province in its COVID-19 relief efforts under an Emergency Temporary Registration, and you have been recruited by the Horizon or Vitalité Health Network, please complete an Application for Emergency Temporary Registration Form and provide evidence that Horizon or Vitalité wishes to hire you to provide Covid 19 support (a job offer) and submit both to firstname.lastname@example.org and copy HRP3CN19@gnb.ca. Once this form and a confirmation of your recruitment are received by NANB, and it is determined that you are eligible for an Emergency Temporary Registration, you will receive a registration certificate via email.
If you have practiced a minimum of 1125 hours in the last 10 years, are a former member in good standing with NANB, and wish to assist the Province in its COVID-19 relief efforts, you may be eligible for a Restricted Emergency Temporary Registration that would restrict your practice to a COVID-19 support role in a vaccination clinic or assessment/testing centre. If you think you qualify for a Restricted Emergency Temporary Registration, please follow the same application process outlined above.
All Emergency Temporary Registrations and Restricted Emergency Temporary Registrations will be valid until May 31st, 2022.
