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 2023/2024 licence year. 

More information, including key dates and the application process, will be shared with members soon.

Key Dates 

  • Friday, March 31: Registration renewal with the BC College of Nurses & Midwives (BCCNM) closes at 4:30 p.m.

Note: Members who indicated they are on leave on their 2022/2023 reimbursement application have until Feb. 28, 2023 to submit their renewal receipt.

Reimbursement Dashboard

NBA members applying for reimbursement will have access to a new dashboard that will allow them to check the status of their application and upload any required supporting documentation. Members can access this dashboard by logging into the BCNU Member Portal.
