Important Notice Regarding Deadlines

If renewing online, the application submission deadline is midnight, central time. This deadline applies if you are applying by the standard deadline (March 31 or September 30) or the expiration date (June 30 or December 31). If you have not completed and submitted the application by midnight, central time, you may incur a late fee or miss the opportunity to renew entirely.

It is your personal and professional responsibility to meet renewal requirements and submit an application on or before the deadline if you wish to maintain your CRRN credential. It is in your best interest to renew well before the deadline to avoid problems and the potential loss of your CRRN certification.

Advantages to renewing early:

  1. Check it off your “to do” list and save money by avoiding the late fee.
  2. Give yourself extra time in case problems are identified. If you wait until the deadline, it might not be possible to correct any problems.
  3. Get answers to your questions. Customer services representatives are available Monday-Friday, 8 am to 6 pm central time. If calling outside of these times, you will be unable to reach a live operator and if you wait until the deadline to renew, you may be unable to get help with your questions.

The RNCB is not responsible for

  • lost, stolen, mangled, misdirected, or postage due mail
  • applicants’ inability to access assistance by phone or email
  • applications not received due to difficulty accessing the internet, service outage or delays, computer difficulties or other technical difficulties.
