Application Fees and 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 after you are deemed eligible, your application fee will be reimbursed, minus the $125 non-refundable administrative fee. See our withdrawal policy for details.

Any payment made by a third party will be refunded to the third party.

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

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