Creating Account / Membership Options

Once you have created an account, you will have the ability to apply to become a PANS member.

Step One : Please fill out the appropriate information on the form in your Member Profile page. 

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

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


Step Four  - 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 Five : Once you have paid for your membership, 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. To obtain your Insurance Certificate, please contact us at
