PHS Nurses License Fee Reimbursement

To: PHS Nurses

We are now prepared to start collecting information from the members to begin
processing the fee reimbursements for the annual license fee paid to the BC
College of Nurses and Midwives. This is to be done in-line with the Provincial
Collective Agreement (the NBA), Appendix GG. For your reference the NBA is
viewable here.

Eligible employees will be reimbursed $215.00 of the annual license fee.

We require specific information from employees who wish to apply for the fee
reimbursement.  The information that we will need is:

  1. Your name (as recorded with the Employer);
  2. Your Practicing License Renewal receipt OR a copy of the confirmation email
    from BCCNM confirming your Practicing License renewal; and
  3. Your current postal address so that we can mail a cheque to you.

If you have already applied for the License Fee Reimbursement through the BCNU
(i.e. if you work as a nurse at an additional employer where you are a member of the
BCNU and applied through their online portal), you do not need to apply a second
time through CUPE 1004.

Please send all the information we have requested to info@cupe1004.ca, in an email
titled ‘Nursing License Fee Reimbursement – [YOUR NAME]’.

We kindly request that you provide us with your information by May 31st, 2022.

If you have any further questions, please contact CUPE 1004 Business Agent Alex Braidek at
alex.braidek@cupe1004.ca.
