For the 2019 renewal period, RN fees have increased to $641.32 and NP fees have increased to $719.54.
After four years of fee stability, the CNPS Board of Directors has determined that a fee increase is necessary for the 2019 registration period. The 2019 fee for an RN will be $48 ($14 increase over the 2018 fee). The 2019 fee for an NP will be $122.50 ($37 increase over the 2018 fee). A further increase of $37 is contemplated for NPs in 2020. Learn more about the CNPS fee increase.
We collect fees on behalf of CNA, which has increased their fees by $2.90 per member.
Since 2012, renewal fees have increased annually to account for inflation based on the annual Alberta Consumer Price Index (CPI) as published by Statistics Canada. This year, there was a 1.6 per cent inflationary increase to fees.
In March 2018, Council passed a motion to reallocate $15 from the existing capital contribution to support the operating budget effectively decreasing the capital contribution portion to $15 per member per year.
