Applicants who held registration with the NSAMRT but surrendered for a period of time will need to re-apply for licensure to practice as an MRT.
STEPS IN THE REGISTRATION PROCESS
1. Application for registration
Complete a reinstatement application by entering the member login with your e-mail address on file with the NSAMRT. Please do not complete another initial application; if you cannot recall your e-mail on file, please contact the NSAMRT at firstname.lastname@example.org. The application form is a legal document. You must answer all sections completely and accurately.
- A completed online reinstatement application form. Incomplete application forms will not be processed.
2. Compile required documentation
Applicants for reinstatement must be able to demonstrate that they meet the following registration requirements:
a. Demonstration of good conduct
The NSAMRT has an obligation to protect the public and needs to be satisfied that you are of good character. You are required to declare any of the following:
- Any disciplinary finding as an MRT or in another profession in Nova Scotia or another jurisdiction.
- Conviction of a criminal, drug, or traffic offense, excluding minor traffic offenses such as parking or speeding.
- Any finding of liability in a civil proceeding.
- If you are currently under criminal investigation or have a pending criminal or civil court date.
- A self-declaration made on your application form. If you answer yes to any of the declarations, the NSAMRT will ask you to send more information, such as a transcript of the criminal record. The NSAMRT will use this information to decide if you are eligible for registration and, if applicable, to determine if conditions should be imposed on your registration.
- A CFTA Report from last MRT regulatory organization you have been registered or licensed with. Request that your previous regulatory or licensing organization send a completed CFTA form to NSAMRT at email@example.com. If there is an area of concern identified by your previous regulator, you will be contacted by the NSAMRT. You will be asked to provide more information regarding the nature and timing of the offense or concern and how the issue has been managed or resolved. Your eligibility for registration will depend on the nature, timing, and severity of the issue.
It is important that you practice as an MRT in order to maintain your skills, and keep up-to-date with any recent change in practice. Applicants require proof of practice in the past 5 years. If you have not met this requirement, you will need to complete a re-entry program.
- A curriculum vitae outlining your employment history is considered satisfactory to meet this requirement. This may be uploaded with your application as a word document or PDF.
c. Payment of annual registration fee
The annual NSAMRT registration fee is $450.00 and CAMRT registration fees are $225 for a total cost of $675. For individuals that are reinstating that did not resign in good standing, there is an additional fee of $100. The registration period is Jan 1st to Dec 31st each year. Those registering mid-year will have dues pro-rated. Payment may be made by cheque, credit card or money order, payable to the NSAMRT in Canadian funds.
3. Registration with the NSAMRT
The Medical Radiation Technologist Act Section 10(1)(a)requires that all registrants with the NSAMRT be a member in good standing with the Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologist (CAMRT). For the convenience of registrants, NSAMRT collects CAMRT dues during NSAMRT registration process and forwards dues and registration information to CAMRT
Completed applications may require 10 business days to be processed.
You cannot begin working as an MRT in Nova Scotia until you have received notice from the NSAMRT that your application has been approved.
