Can someone explain renewing your license/requirements?

  1. This is the first time I will be renewing my license. I know that there are new requirements to do 20 hrs of continuing ed to renew for 2012. Am I still obligated to complete this if it is my first time renewing? I have read no, but I worry that it is correct.

    Also, what is the process for renewing? Basically just doing it online and paying the fee?

    Thanks experienced IL nurses!

    W - you can find the requirements online at State of Illinois : Department of Financial and Professional Regulation

    Greentea06 - you might want to email them also as on this forum we are mostly US-educated. Another option would be to post in the International Forum.
