E-licensing Surcharge Assessed to Nurse Licenses

In 2009 the legislature enacted MN Statute 16E.22 which requires state agencies to collect a temporary surcharge of 10% of the licensing fee for business, commercial, professional and occupational licenses. This includes nursing licenses and must be collected whether application is made by paper or online. This fee must be collected from July 2009 through June 2015.

Since 2009 the Board of Nursing has utilized our reserve fund to meet this requirement on nurse's behalf but our reserve fund is now depleted. We are now obligated by law to collect the surcharge directly from our applicants and licensees.
