As part of the licence renewal process, all members must pay an annual licensure fee. Since the fee is part of the application process, we cannot process your application until payment has been received. For more information on the cost of the licence renewal fee this year, please click here.
To meet the diverse needs of our members, we offer many different payment options. Continue reading to explore the different payment options available to you this year.
Many members pay the licensure fee after they complete their licence renewal application. If this option interests you, please follow the prompts at the end of the application.
If you apply and forget to pay, simply log back into the Member Portal and click the link for payment. Your application will not be processed until payment has been received.

You have the option to pay for your licensure fee in installments. Through this payment option, you can pay for next year’s licence renewal fee in small, fixed payments twice a month throughout the year. The benefit is that it allows you to consistently budget for a smaller fee payment throughout the year, instead of paying the fee all at once. Click here to learn more about this payment option.
In certain locations in Nova Scotia, you have the option to sign up for payroll deduction through your employer. This option may not be available to everyone so we recommend that you check with your employer before choosing this payment option.
There are two types of payroll deduction plans and each plan affects how and when you must renew your licence:
1. Your employer pays the fee directly to CRNNS on your behalf:
How to Renew: When you apply to renew your licence, you must select the payroll deduction option at the beginning of your licence renewal application.
When to Renew: You must apply to renew your licence by September 4 in order to be eligible for this payment option. If you do not apply by September 4, your employer will not submit your fee directly to us on your behalf. This will mean that you will be required to submit the fee yourself.
2. You pay the fee and your employer reimburses you:
How to Renew: When you renew your licence, do not select the payroll deduction option at the beginning of the application. You must pay the fee to CRNNS at the time and then apply to your employer for reimbursement.
When to Renew: You must apply to renew your licence before October 15 to guarantee that your licence is processed by October 31.
If you have any questions, please reach out to us. We will respond within 5 business days.
