If you recently recertified with ANCC please read this ASAP!
The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) now offers online certification renewal. While this is be more convenient than paper forms, please be advised that the option to automatically forward your renewal information to the Board of Nursing is not present in the online renewal application. This is a separate function that can be done on another menu in your account, or by phone.
What this may mean for individual NPs is termination of collaboration agreement by the Board of Nursing if they did not receive your verification of renewal from ANCC. More than twenty NPs across Alabama had their collaborative agreements terminated unexpectedly today.
If you have recertified with ANCC recently and did not request that verification of the renewal be sent to the Board of Nursing, please check your records immediately. I am happy to answer further questions or assistance and can be reached by replying to this post or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
