NBCRNA Announces Continued Professional Certification (CPC) Fee Updates
CHICAGO - October 16, 2019 – The National Board of Certification and Recertification for Nurse Anesthetists (NBCRNA) announces that in response to CRNA requests and to simplify the timing, the timing of the Continued Professional Certification (CPC) is moving from being paid every two years to every four years. Instead of paying the CPC fee to renew certification every two years (for the upcoming years), the fee structure will change to be every four years and will coincide with the timing of the every-four-year CPC Compliance Application (formerly “Recertification Application”).
For many years, the “recertification fee” was paid every two years (for the upcoming two years of your certification), and this continued the same under the CPC Program when it launched in 2016. Now, starting in 2020, as the four-year payment cycle continues, the CPC fee will be $250 every four years and there will no longer be a fee associated with the 2-year Check-in application. The 2-year Check-in will continue, as it serves several essential functions, but there will no longer be a fee associated with it.
