1. How do I know if I have joined CNA?
There several types of CNA membership — jurisdictional, independent and retired RNs. One easy way to know if you have joined CNA is if you receive Canadian Nurse. Please see the Join / Renew with CNA page for details.

If you’re still not sure, e-mail members@cna-aiic.ca or call 1-800-361-8404, ext. 262 and we’ll be happy to verify your status.

2. I am an RN in Ontario. Am I a member?
Yes, if you joined independently in Ontario you are a member. If you joined CNA through RNAO, you can still take advantage of CNA services and benefits and access CNA products until December 31, 2016. For more information, please see an important update for Ontario Nurses.

3. Can I join CNA at the same time as applying for specialty certification?
Joining CNA and certification applications are separate. First, join CNA, then you can apply for CNA specialty certification and save approximately $131 on the certification program, a benefit exclusive to CNA members.

4. Can I receive Canadian Nurse magazine without joining CNA?
Yes. Individual subscriptions are available for an annual cost of $46 (plus applicable taxes). For less than $10 more, you can receive a Canadian Nurse subscription and the full complement of CNA benefits.
