    Hmm, I could almost swear that we are paying about $100/year here in KY, but after reading these posts that seems awfully high. Maybe I'm thinking of how much it was when we were renewing every OTHER year. I mean, it might be more like around $50 now.

    Gas is only $1.61 a gallon where you are? Is that a typo?

    215$ renewal and no magazine or insurance..gotta buy our own.
    Alaska pay depends on where your working. If you are out in the bush the pay is better but there is nothing to spend it on, city nurses make good wages but the prices here are outta this world:
    corrections lpn $19.82 hr but............
    milk 4.89$ gallon
    gas 1.61$ gallon
    bread 2.38$ loaf
    coke 1.79$ 1 litter
    nacho chips 4.50$ big bag
    rent 1200.00$ month 3bed, 1 1/2 bath house

    thats why I work 2 jobs

    In Queensland, licence renewal is annually.
    Current fee is AUS 87 (about 73 US).

    Iowa's renewal rate is $99.00 now. And the LPN license is now the same as the RN. (Of course salaries are not even in the same ball park!).

    If it's based on amount of paperwork, they ought to be the same.

    whatever we pay its entirely too much....
    I think I paid $125 last year
    and that was only to the college of nurses of ontario
    here in this wonderful province we have 3 ppl to pay, the cno (colloge of nurses of ontario) , ONA (ontario nurses association) AND RNAO (registered nurses association of ontario)
    ONA Is another 50 bucks a month taken right off your paycheck, RNAO is a whopping 260 dollars a year
    but what can you do?
    sometimes I leave work, sit down and think that they should be paying us for our licenes , not vice versa......
    You only pay ONA if you are a member.... I am not, so I save the union dues.
    And I'm not a member of RNAO, and never have been.

    My workplace reimburses me for 1/2 of my license cost, since I am part time. They give the full-timers the whole amount back.

    And in Ontario, we also have to do the whole Quality Assurance thing, and they "audit" a select number of nurses each year, to make sure that we are doing our continual learning and peer reviews. If you don't fill out on the form that you have met your Quality Assurance goals, they send your forms back to you, and you quite likely will be "audited" for your educational paperwork and peer reviews.
