Can I just phone you and you can do it for me over the phone? OR Can I just come in and pay and you can fill out my form for me?
Legally, staff of ANBLPN cannot complete the registration process for you as you must declare your compliance and agree to the terms. It is every LPNs personal responsibility to complete their registration form independently, update their personal information, and adhere to all licensure requirements. If you have difficulty, you can phone or email the office for assistance but staff cannot complete the process for you.
If you are coming into the office to pay, it is with the expectation that you have already completed your on-line form. If you are coming to the office for assistance, we ask that you phone first to make an appointment so that someone will be available to help you.
When is the deadline to register?
All LPNs must register by November 30th.
Please be aware that our office hours are 8:30am to 4:30pm and we cannot guarantee that your license will be processed if you register beyond office hours on November 30th.
If you are not registered by this deadline your license will be suspended and you will be subject to a late fee of $115.00. You will not be able to re-activate your license until the registration form is completed and the registration fee and late fee are paid in full. Extensions are not possible.
If you work any shifts without an active license you are not covered by medical malpractice insurance and you will be subject to additional fees.
Please note that employees of Horizon Health must register by November 15th, 2022. (Horizon Health Policy).
What is the registration fee this year?
Active: $325.00. Non-Practicing: $40.25.
*You cannot work any shifts with a non-practicing license.
What are my requirements for annual registration?
To maintain your active licensure, every LPN must maintain a minimum of 1000 active practice hours over the 5 most recent years and comply 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 and documented at the time of registration as you will be declaring that you are aware of this annual requirement and that you have complied.
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.
How can I pay for my license?
When registering on-line, once you have submitted your form you will be directed to the payment page. Here you can pay by Visa, Visa-Debit, Mastercard, American Express, or Discovery Card.
You can also mail us a cheque or money order - please be aware that if you are paying by cheque or money order it is your responsibility to ensure that we receive these in time to deposit it before the registration deadline. If you wait too long to send the cheque or money order, we cannot guarantee that it will be deposited in time to meet the registration deadline of November 30th.
You can also pay with cash or debit at our office - if coming to the office to pay it is with the expectation that your form has already been completed on-line.
What if I am on payroll deduction with my employer?
If you are on payroll deduction through your employer, simply fill out your registration form and submit. Once we receive the payment from your employer we will process your license. Even if we have received the payment 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 2022-23 licensing year?
Yes, if you are working ANY shifts between December 1st 2022 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.
Can I still be a part of the early bird registration draw if I filled out my registration form but my employer has not submitted my payment yet (payroll deduction program)?
Yes! Providing you have filled out your form by the early bird deadline (October 14th) and are on payroll deduction with your employer, you will still be included in the early bird registration draw as we know that it is beyond your control when the employer sends the registration fees to us.
