Membership Categories

WNRCASN has three categories of membership. Please review the qualifications for each category before submitting your membership application. When you are ready, click the link below the category that best fits your role.

Please note that the Associate and Undergraduate categories require you to upload documentation of your status in that category – such as proof of enrollment as a graduate or undergraduate student.

If your status should change through the year (e.g. you graduate and take a faculty position) you will need to email [email protected] to reset your category when you renew your membership for the following year.

Active Membership

This category is for full or part-time teaching staff of faculties / schools / colleges of nursing in WNRCASN and the teaching staff of programs and schools of nursing in collaborative programs with them. Active members have full voting privileges at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) and any online voting that is initiated throughout the year between AGMs.

Active Undergraduate Student Membership

This category is for any full or part-time undergraduate and non-faculty nursing students in a nursing program affiliated with WNRCASN. Non-faculty nursing students might include the student representatives from the Canadian Nursing Student’s Association (CNSA) who may or may not be attending a WNRCASN member school due to the different regional configurations of the two associations. Active undergraduate student members also have full voting privileges at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) and any online voting that is initiated throughout the year between AGMs.

Associate Membership

This category is for former (retired) full or part-time faculty members of a faculty / school / college of nursing. Documentation of retired status is required. Acceptable documentation includes an attestation by the applicant that they are retired (a WORD document uploaded, or an email sent to [email protected] is fine).

This category is also open to full or part-time graduate students who may or may not be faculty members. Documentation of graduate student status is required. Course registration, tuition dues, or class timetable are examples of acceptable documentation that may be uploaded or emailed to [email protected].

Membership in this category will be listed as Pending, and will not grant access to the member’s only area until the documentation requested has been received and reviewed. If you are waiting more than a couple of days for your membership to be accepted after you have submitted your documentation, please email [email protected].
