How long do I have to finish the CCNP exams before my CCNA runs out?

I finished my CCNA in 2003 and the Remote Access exam in June of last year. How long do I have to finish the CCNP exams before my CCNA runs out?
I am happy to say you have more time than you think. Assuming you took the 642-821 Remote Access exam, you are recertified for 3 years from the date that you passed your remote access. In fact, each time you take a Professional or Specialist exam that begins with 642, you are automatically recertified for your CCNA.
