New Licensees: The Board does not prorate fees. There are no provisions in the Board's Law and Rules to prorate fees, so they are not authorized to do it for anyone. Everyone with an expiration date of 12/31/2019 must renew their license, regardless of when it was issued. All licensees renew at the same time. If you were licensed in 2018 or 2019, you may not have been licensed a full 2 years yet, but you still need to renew. If you received a renewal notice, you are required to renew your license to continue practice. You will need to renew your license by December 31, 2019, to avoid expiration of your license. Renewing on or after January 1, 2020, will result in additional late fees. It is illegal to practice in ND without a current license.
Continuing Education (CE) Compliance NOW begins
This section does not apply to general diagnostic operators (GDO), RCIS, RCES, or grandfathered licensees. Those licensees must submit records upon each renewal as their requirements are unique to their individual practice. Those licensees must submit continuing education for every renewal beginning now. See NDCC 43-62-14(7) and NDAC 114-02-01-10, 114-02-02-03.
Beginning 1/1/2020, all licenses will be required to earn continuing education for license renewal beginning this renewal (2020-2021) cycle and for ALL future renewals. NDCC 43-62-14(3), NDAC 114-02-01-04 states “An individual must be continuing education compliant in each modality of practice and may practice in more than one modality and all the modalities will be acknowledged on the license.”
You will not send in CE documentation unless audited by the Board, retain CE information for your own records. Continuing education for license is not in excess of the hours you already earn for national registry (ARRT, ARDMS, CCI, NMTCB, etc.)! You are required to be CE compliant ONLY in those modalities you are currently practicing. NDAC 114-02-01-04 states (5) five hours for EACH of those which you practice but those hours may be the same hours submitted to your registry. This is a requirement for your State License renewal and is also State law. Travels (locum tenens) must also adhere to this state law if renewing their ND license.
RCIS/RCES CE Compliance: NDAC 114-02-01-05 and 114-02-01-06 -Biennially (two-year) shall complete (12) twelve hours of fluoroscopy safety and relevant radiation protection continuing education; must be RCEEM eligible and acceptable as registry appropriate contact hours. (If not accepted by your national registry it will not be accepted by the NDMIRTB.) This is a requirement for your State License renewal and is also State law. All documentation MUST be submitted upon each renewal.
Information for Cath Labs: Licensure requirements are for only those individuals PERFORMING imaging (this includes “panning” and activation of fluoroscopy) is considered performing medical imaging. If you are NOT “panning” or activating fluoroscopy you do not need to be licensed in ND. The Board realizes that each facility has its own policies of whom may performing imaging in the cath lab, but ND state law is clear, if performing imaging you must be licensed.
Printing Your License Certificate: Once you have renewed, you will receive a receipt showing your license is renewed. You may print your license certificate. If you have problems with printing the certificate, please contact the Board office.
