Certification Fees Refunds

All fees exclude taxes (GST or HST will be added as applicable in your province).

Fees for initial certification and renewal applications are set annually and include a $125 non-refundable administrative fee.  

In addition to the regular exam fee, the $105 Pearson VUE test centre fee is extra and paid directly to Pearson VUE at the time of booking.

Reimbursement of fees

You will receive a full reimbursement of your application fee if you are deemed ineligible due to lack of nursing practice hours and/or continuous learning hours.

If you withdraw your application, the fee minus the $125 non-refundable administrative fee will be refunded to the credit card we have on file for you. Any payment made by a third party will be refunded directly to the third party.  

For a refund on your $105 Pearson VUE test centre fee you must cancel your exam at least 24 hours before your appointment.

Additional fees
If you withdraw your application after the last day of the exam administration window, you will be charged a $95 late withdrawal fee in addition to the $125 non-refundable administrative fee.

Renewal applications received up to 90 days after the renewal deadline will be charged a $95 late renewal fee.
