Registration Requirements and FAQs
It is every LPNs professional responsibility to maintain their licensure annually, update their personal information and adhere to all licensure requirements in a timely manner. Any LPN who does not complete their on-line registration form and provide payment by the registration deadline will be subject to a late fee and they will not be able to practice until the registration process is complete. No extensions will be permitted.
Under the Association of New Brunswick Licensed Practical Nurses By-Laws (2018) Section 5.1 - Any person who has not paid their annual fees by November 30th of each year shall be suspended and subject to a fine as set out by the Board of Directors.
What are my requirements for annual registration?
To be actively registered every LPN must ensure they have 1000 practice hours over the 5 most recent years and complied with the annual Continuing Competence Program (CCP). CCP is a mandatory component of registration and applies to every actively practicing LPN. Your CCP learning goals should be completed at the time of registration.
To be considered registered you must provide both your payment AND complete the on-line registration form. Both components need to be completed in order for you to be registered.
When is the deadline to register?
You must register by midnight, November 30th . If you do not register on time your license will be suspended and you will be subject to a late fee of $115.00 Extensions are not possible.
*Please note that if you work for Horizon Health, your deadline is November 15th (Horizon Policy)*
What is the registration fee this year?
The registration fee is the same as last year. For active registration the fee is $325, if you are registering as non-practicing (maternity leave, sick leave etc.) the fee is $28.75. You cannot work any shifts with a non-practicing license.
How can I pay for my license?
Within our database you can provide payment by Visa, Master Card, Visa Debit, American Express or Discovery Card. You can also mail us a cheque or money order, or come into the office to pay**. We are unable to accept e-transfers at this time.
**Due to public health guidelines, If you are coming into our office, you are required to show proof of your COVID-19 vaccination and government issued identification**
What if I am on a payroll deduction program with my employer?
If you are on payroll deduction through your employer, simply fill out your registration form and submit. Once we receive the monies from your employer we will process your license. Even if we have received the monies from your employer, you still need to complete your on-line form, otherwise you are not registered.
What if I am enrolled in the pre-authorized debit (PAD) with ANBLPN?
If you are on our PAD, simply fill out your registration form and submit. If there are any outstanding payments (i.e. joined PAD later in the year), you will need to pay the amount showing on your invoice.
Do I have to pay the full licensing fee if I am going on maternity/sick leave or retiring during the 2021-22 licensing year?
Yes, if you are working ANY shifts between December 1st 2021 and beyond you are required to be fully licensed and have medical malpractice insurance, and therefor partial payments are not permitted. It is also not possible to be reimbursed if you only work part of the year.
