Temporary (emergency) Registration Available

In response to the PHO Immunization Order on March 14, 2021, the BC College of Nurses and Midwives (BCCNM) is making Temporary (emergency) registration available for qualified applicants for the purpose of providing assistance during the pandemic efforts as declared by the PHO.

The Temporary (emergency) registration is available to Non-practicing registrants, former registrants and practicing midwives in other Canadian jurisdictions for a period of up to 180 days.   

Malpractice Insurance (MPP) premiums and MABC & BCCNM administrative fees are waived for Temporary (emergency) registrants.  For all other registrant categories usual premiums and fees apply.  

Commercial General Liability Insurance:  While MPP will waive this requirement with respect to Temporary (emergency) registrants only, both MPP and the MABC strongly recommend that you be covered by CGL. If you wish to apply for CGL coverage available thru Shaw Sabey, please complete the "Application for CGL coverage" form and contact Shaw Sabey (contact information is on page 2 of the application form).

Midwives who wish to change their MABC registration status must complete an online application.  The change of status application will be considered approved upon confirmation from BCCNM.

Applications that are not approved by BCCNM will be canceled.
