Return To Practice

Return To Practice

Re-entry nurses need to assess their experience, interests and skills when returning to practice. If you have not been in a formal nursing role and obtained 1,125 hours in the past (5) years since leaving the nursing profession, additional training may be required.

All former and prospective YRNA members who wish to return to practice as an RN or NP in the Yukon and be considered for licensing by the YRNA may apply. We encourage applicants members to contact the office if they do not meet the hourly requirement.  Please contact the Registrar at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you would like ask a direct question regarding return to practice. 

Funding for Nurse Refresher training is available through the YRNA. Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you would like more information.
