How much does your state charge for your nursing license?

  1. 1 I was wondering how much states charge for renewal of licenses. I am an RN and Indiana charges $50 during the year in which you renew. We renew every other year in Indiana. LPN's in the even years, RN's in odd years. I think LPN licenses are the same as RN's. I am curious to see how much other states charge. I know Indiana will sock you with a $50 late fee also. A couple of my friends got nailed with that. Ouch.

    I think it's 40-something for an RN renewal here in Ohio. I'm thinking it was $42.

    $32 to renew EVERY year by Jan 31 or cannot work. That seems high to me.

    $60.oo for 2 year licence in North Dakota (RN)

    However, I moved back to ND in October had to pay $60.00 and then had to fork out another 60.00 to cover the next two years in December. Once again ....my timing is off.

    Failure to renew your licensure leads to daily monetary penalities plus your name is put in the newsletter that outlines your failure to renew licensure and monetary penalty.

    PA license renewal is every 2 years.

    "Renewal fee for RN license is $45. There is no requirement to evidence a number of practice hours or continuing education hours to renew the license.

    Renewal fee for PN license is $40. "

    illinois is 50 dollars every two years. That is probably why indiana increased theirs to 50 dollars, there are many nurses interchanged between illinois and indiana.
