  • Check-In (also called 2-year Check-in)

    • Check-in fee
      • Note: Beginning in 2020, instead of the CPC fee being due every two years, the fee structure will change to every four years and will coincide with the timing of the every-four-year Certification Renewal Application. As we continue with the four-year payment cycle, the CPC fee will be $250 every four years and there will no longer be a fee associated with the Check-in application done at the mid-point of each 4-year CPC cycle. The Check-in will still be a component of the CPC Program as it serves several essential functions, but there will no longer be a fee associated with it. 

      • (A small number of newer certificants will still be required to pay the Check-in fee through 2021. See your personalized deadlines and next steps by logging onto the NBCRNA portal www.portal.nbcrna.com.)

    • An additional fee will apply if the CPC Check-in was/is not completed by one's deadline, and will depend on the number of days past the Check-in deadline:
    • 1-30 days post Check-In deadline
      • No fee/grace period
    • 31-60 days post Check-In deadline
      • $35; the certificant would need to pay the current CPC fee, plus an additional $35 fee
    • 61-90 days post Check-In deadline
      • $75; the certificant would need to pay the current CPC fee, and the additional fee increases to $75
    • 91 days post Check-In deadline
      • $110; the certificant would need to pay the current CPC fee and at this point, the additional fee increases to $110
