Maybe I'm thinking of how much it was when we were renewing every OTHER year. I mean, it might be more like around $50 now.

215$ renewal and no magazine or insurance..gotta buy our own.
Alaska pay depends on where your working. If you are out in the bush the pay is better but there is nothing to spend it on, city nurses make good wages but the prices here are outta this world:
corrections lpn $19.82 hr but............
milk 4.89$ gallon
gas 1.61$ gallon
bread 2.38$ loaf
coke 1.79$ 1 litter
nacho chips 4.50$ big bag
rent 1200.00$ month 3bed, 1 1/2 bath house
thats why I work 2 jobs

I think I paid $125 last year
and that was only to the college of nurses of ontario
here in this wonderful province we have 3 ppl to pay, the cno (colloge of nurses of ontario) , ONA (ontario nurses association) AND RNAO (registered nurses association of ontario)
ONA Is another 50 bucks a month taken right off your paycheck, RNAO is a whopping 260 dollars a year
but what can you do?
sometimes I leave work, sit down and think that they should be paying us for our licenes , not vice versa......
And I'm not a member of RNAO, and never have been.
My workplace reimburses me for 1/2 of my license cost, since I am part time. They give the full-timers the whole amount back.
And in Ontario, we also have to do the whole Quality Assurance thing, and they "audit" a select number of nurses each year, to make sure that we are doing our continual learning and peer reviews. If you don't fill out on the form that you have met your Quality Assurance goals, they send your forms back to you, and you quite likely will be "audited" for your educational paperwork and peer reviews.
