    It was $45 when I renewed in July...price is increasing to $62 starting 9/1/02...no CEU's required...license has to be renewed by your birthday...no late fee penalty...but if it is not renewed by that date you cannot work until it is taken care of. I have been a nurse for 3 years and the price has gone up every year since getting my license...it started out at $25.

    It's $70.00 for both a RN and LPN and if it's received late it's $95.00 in VA. Don't you love that bi yearly time of the year when it come in the mail???

    Wow, VegasRN and Tshe, I just assumed that the RN renewal was the same as the LVN's, which is now $100 in California. Two years ago it was $75.

    Maine is $40.00 every other year with no CEU's and New Hampshire is $60.00 every other year with 30 CEU's required. Too bad the states couldn't all have a set fee and number of CEUs needed.

    I have just moved to Alberta from Manitoba...and that's a good thing. I just received my license for the remainder of the registration period here, which cost me $153.55 (~$90 US) to allow me to work from September 9 to September 30, at which time I will have to renew my license, for another $278.20. (You do the math!) My Manitoba license, which expires at the end of December, cost me $238.60 for one year. So for the year 2002, I have paid nearly $500 in registration fees. That doesn't include the two service charges I paid, one to Alberta to process my paper work ($55) and one to Manitoba to verify my registration there ($32.10). I think I've been hosed!! The only consolation is that it is subtracted (except for the Goods and Services Tax... yes, our registration fees are taxed by the federal government as a "service") directly from my gross income at income tax time.
