Registration for B.C. grads

Getting started on the B.C. grad application process.

 Before you apply

To avoid delays or issues with processing your application, you must prepare the following documents before you start an online application:

  • a scanned copy of your Statutory Declaration (Form 11). This form must be notarized by a notary public or lawyer. Download Form 11 now and have it notarized before you begin the application process. 
  • a scanned copy of identification documents, e.g., passport, birth certificate, marriage certificate or B.C. driver’s license that prove your identity. This document must be notarized by a notary public or lawyer and their seal or stamp must be visible on the scanned image. If your name has changed, you will also need to submit a scanned copy of a notarized identity document for your previous legal name(s).
  • All documents must include your full name. We cannot accept documents that include initials as part of your name. 
  • If you have previously submitted a Form 11 and identity documents to us (for example with an Employed Student Registration application) you are not required to submit again.

 Optional: Provisional registration

The application for RN practising status includes a question about applying for provisional registration. Provisional registration enables you to work as a nurse (with conditions) while you prepare to write the NCLEX and is required only if you plan to practice in BC before you write and pass the exam.
