College Registration Fee Reimbursement

During the last round of NBA bargaining, the union was successful in negotiating a partial reimbursement of nurses’ college and licensing fees from employers. As part of the agreement, the union will be administering the reimbursement. BCNU members covered by the NBA collective agreement will be eligible for a $215 reimbursement for the 2021/2022 licence year.

Applications now closed

What's new for 2021

The following changes are new to the 2021 reimbursement process:

  • BCNU NBA members who applied for reimbursement last year AND consented to BCCNM sharing their licence renewal confirmation with BCNU during the registration process will not need to provide BCNU with registration proof of payment. This is intended to streamline the application and reimbursement process for members. Learn more about BCNU's efforts to streamline the process for members here.

  • BCNU NBA members who are applying for reimbursement for the first time, or did not consent to BCCNM sharing their licence renewal confirmation with BCNU will need to provide proof of payment receipt during the reimbursement application process.
