Licensure Fees

All Board of Nursing expenses are supported by fees charged to applicants and licensees. Fees charged by the Minnesota Board of Nursing for services related to the issuance of a license to a Registered Nurse or Licensed Practical Nurse are based on the costs of providing the services and maintaining the activities required of the agency. The Board is required to collect sufficient fees every two years so that the income will as closely as possible equal anticipated expenditures during a fiscal biennium. The budget is approved by the Board of Nursing and appropriated by the legislature every two years. All fees paid to the Minnesota Board of Nursing are non-refundable.
