    In West Virginia the renewal fee is $25.00 every year with 30 CEU requirement every two years. 2 CEU's must be in end of life care with pain management.

    Initial licensure fee is $51.50. Licensure by endorsement is $30.00, a $5.00 fee to replace certificate of registration, $15.00 fee for presentation of non-negotiable check, and change of name and/or address is $5.00.

    If an individual lets their license lapse there is a $50.00 reinstatment fee plus the $25.00 renewal fee.

    True about Alaska! $265 for license; an extra $50 for a temporary license if you need it when you first apply. And if you get you 1st license over 90 days before the renewal date (like I did!!!) (I got it in Jan and paid $265) you pay the entire renewal fee!! No pro-rating!!! (So I need to fork out another $250+) OH, WELL!!!

    OMG! I have two provincial licences: Quebec and Ontario.

    Quebec is about $270 per year (Canadian $) (my work pays for this one)

    and Ontario is about $ 115 per year. (Canadian)

    I live in Quebec, but my licence is only good for Quebec. The Ontario licence can have reciprocity to the other Canadian provinces. This is why I keep both. Luckily I don't have to pay them at the same time.

    I have two RN licenses both of which are renewed every other year. My original license is from PA and last year they raised the fees from $21 to $45!!!!!!!! When I renewed my OH license last year, it cost me 35 bucks cause I sent it in as soon as I got it in the mail. In Ohio, the longer you wait to send your renewal in, the more it costs you.

    [B]In Iowa we renew every 3 years. The renewal fee is $81.00 for RN. For renewal, we have to had 36 hours of continuing education. The continuing ed requirements were recently reduced from 45 hours.
    Willie, will check to see if my information is correct, but I think they just changed it to q 2 years.

    If you happen to let your liscence lapse, it'll cost you another
    100 $ to reinstate, plus you have to show CEU's less than 1 year old. Last year I had back surgery, and while I was off work, I had a birthday, neglected to renew(see egg on face). Then I had to scramble to do new CEU's--they did not recognize 2 college classes I had. Total cost including CEU's--250 $.
