    Not getting into the last comment re the power

    L wonder though if that will mean that the other states will start jumping up as well - they havent risen in Vic and NSW for some time now - hope not - not when you then have to add in your ANF fees (if your a member) - still l guess they are both Tax deductiable

    Carn Tiges - not that l can talk about our year at all really.

    Cheers Tookie

    75 buckaroos every other year here in Tennessee. We've recently rec'd notification that, beginning in January, 2004, we shall be required to provide documentation of proof of competency. There are 15 items that we can choose 2 from in which to provide proof of competence. Hmmm

    OMG- $215 for your nursing license? Definitely marking Alaska off my list of places to live. (Not that it was on there in the first place). No offense, but I am not suited for cold climates and darkness 23 hours a day.

    That's something I meant to say... here in Australia, we can claim our nurses registration fee & Australian Nurses Federation
    ( union) fee at taxation time. Is that the same in the USA?...

    I'm a LPN in Illinois-$40.00 every other year. I renew in Jan of next year, then I pay to take RN boards in the summer-that sucks...

    Wisconsin-- I think I paid $40.00 for my 2 year renewal. If late, I think it was a $58.00 fee. No CEUs required or competency proof with renewal. Renewed this past February.

    Illinois is $40.00 every two years. I don't remember if there was a late fee. No CEUs or proof of competency. Renewed in May.

    At my work place, no license renewal-- don't come to work.
