 RNP Registration Program

The RNP Registration Program is a service provided for those that desire to earn documentation in order to qualify for the Registered Naturopathic Practitioner designation. Successful candidates are authorized to carry the initials RNP after their names and are issued a Registration Certificate attesting they have met the registration certification requirements as determined by the IANHP.

Examination and Fees

Candidates are required to complete a series of exams which will demonstrate proficiency in the areas of naturopathy. Payment of a one time examination fee of 675.00 is required at the time an application is submitted. Candidates are to indicate on the online application submission that they desire a RNP registration by examination (indicate this in the diploma/degree box of the Natural Health Education Section).
