If you are a recent graduate who has already passed your entry-to-practice examination, please follow the application process for Alberta graduates.
Members in the temporary register have limitations on their practice. They must be employed, and supervised by a regulated member in the general register who practices in the same specialty when performing restricted activities.
Where an appropriate regulated member is not available to supervise a temporary member, the temporary member may seek approval from the College to receive supervision by a supervisor who
- is a regulated healthcare professional, and
- is authorized by their regulatory body to perform the restricted activity that is being supervised.
The supervising regulated member is required to be physically present, remain within audible distance, and be immediately available for assistance while the temporary member is performing the restricted activity. Availability by electronic devices is not acceptable.
Regulated members are to restrict themselves to performing only those restricted activities that they are competent to perform and that are appropriate to their areas of practice and the procedures being performed.
If you have any questions about temporary registration, please feel welcome to contact the College by email at email@example.com or by phone at 780.487.6130 or 1.800.282.2165.
