Locate the email, click the confirmation and complete the form in your Member Profile page. Ensure that you request approval once your account details are complete.

Step Two - Request Approval : Upon receiving your application, a PANS administrator will approve your request. You will be notified when this is done.

Step Three - Purchase Membership : Purchase your desired membership level to complete the registration process, found through your Member Profile page.

Step Five - Purchase Liability Insurance - Once you add the membership type to your shopping cart, the website will then ask if you would like to purchase corresponding liability insurance. Click Yes or No. Insurance certificates will be emailed directly to members in 5-7 business days.

                   NSCP Number : If you are obtaining a PANS membership for the first time then you likely have not yet been assigned a NSCP (Nova Scotia Collage of Pharmacy) #. If this is the case then you can leave the NSCP # field blank. You can login to your PANS account and update this information once it has been assigned by NSCP. 

Step Six : Once you have paid for your membership (and insurance), a receipt will be immediately generated and an automatic notice will be sent to the Nova Scotia College of Pharmacists and Wilson Insurance/Aviva Insurance Company of Canada notifying them that you are now an active member of PANS and that you have obtained the required liability insurance.
