 The Online registration facility is available at 

Kerala Nursing Council KNMC Registration/Renewal of Registration Certificate – Instructions

Candidates follow the steps for New Registration:

Enter the site:

To start the online application you don’t need to log in, instead go to the area given on the left side of the page named “Public access”. The candidates who studied in Kerala have to go through Primary Registration links and candidates from outside Kerala have to go to Reciprocal Registration.

Photo must be Passport Size with White Background in JPG or JPEG format only having Dimension 150(width) x 200(height) pixels and a size less than 20 KB. On submission, you will receive an application number in your e-mail which you have given.

On successful submission, you will be taken to the Payment Page.

Candidates follow the steps for Renewal:

The application should be submitted through the link “Renewal of KNMC Registration Certificate” and enter registration details. This is the same as registration.

The registration fee will be Rs 500/- for candidates who studied BSC nursing from Kerala and Rs1000/- for those candidates who studied outside Kerala. If you are taking a challan then take a printout of Challan from the application page and pay the money on the next day in a SBT branch. ( same day it won’t work)
