Folks - be aware that the license renewal notification is in the form of an approx 5"x10" postcard that could easily slip into ad flyers in your mail - in fact, that's what mine did, looking very much like a pizza delivery coupon or yet another "come work for us" ad. One side has in large letters: "When Duty Calls." Please be on the lookout for this as I would have unknowingly thrown mine out if a friend had not alerted me. License renewal is being "encouraged" to be done online this year, altho you can call or email to receive a paper form.
I'll let you know when I renew mine online how the process went

I renewed online this weekend. It *was* quick and easy. I did also write a letter re: the poor judgement shown in sending out something that looks like junk mail for an official and very important notification. My friend called to have an application mailed to her (she prefers not to do it online) and registered her complaint over the phone. Talking to other nurses in the area, we are not the only ones who were agitated.
I can't help but think there's no WAY they would pull this with a doctor's license renewal notification.
