8.2 When the Employer requires a new license and/or certification, the Employer will reimburse the nurse for the initial cost of the new license and/or certification. Thereafter, the nurse shall be responsible for maintaining the license and/or certification and for all renewal costs. 

8.3 Nurses will notify their appointing authority or designee if their license and/or certification has been restricted, revoked or suspended, within twenty-four (24) hours of the restriction, revocation or suspension, or prior to their next scheduled shift, whichever occurs first.
