Activity Applications should be submitted at least 60 days prior to the first offering date to facilitate the work of the committee in thoroughly reviewing and if necessary, requesting any additional clarifying materials.  Those applications received less than 60 days but more than 45 days prior to the first offering date must also be accompanied by the additional late fee. Depending on reviewer availability, applications may be accepted less than 45 days but more than 30 days prior to initial offering date when accompanied by application fee, late fee, and expedited review fee.   Please contact ANAMASS via email prior to committing your application if you are less than 45 days from your offering date.   Activity Applications are not accepted for review less than 30 days in advance.  Compliance with all ANCC criteria is required for approval irrespective of timelines.

Calculating Review Time

The application fee is based upon the total clock hours of teaching time within the entire activity including concurrent sessions, if applicable. Example: The activity begins with a 2 hour plenary session followed by the choice of two out of five one-hour breakout sessions.  Therefore, the total length of teaching time equals 7.0 clock hours.  While the learner can earn a maximum of 4.0 contact hours in this example, the fee is based upon the review of the total teaching clock hours.


Administrative Processing Fee

Please note that applicants must use the most current application and forms or it will be returned for re-formatting.  Incomplete applications, those requiring reformatting or submission of revised/missing documents may be subject to an Administrative Processing Fee equal to the late fee for the number of hours of review time for that application.


Payment of Fees:

Payment must be made at time of application.  The online application should allow payment via credit card; if you have any problems, questions about processing time, or to pay directly via credit card, please contact office administrator Lisa Presutti, or 617-990-2856.  You must provide the Organization Name, Application Number, initial offering date and number of clock hours of review time.  If your organization requires you to pay by check, please allow sufficient time to place your check request so that ANAMASS receives the check when you submit the application.  Please make checks payable to ANA MASS and mail to ANAMASS c/o Cammie Townsend, 70 Warren Road, Ashland MA  01721.


Applications submitted without payment will not be considered complete until payment is received, and will not be reviewed. Additional late fees may be incurred or result in application not being reviewed.  Incomplete applications and those requiring revisions may take longer to review than the specified time frames. 


Approval to submit <45 days (but more than 30 days) before initial offering date

Please contact or cell phone 508 740-8330 if you have any questions or need approval to submit an application between 45-30 days prior to the offering date.  Approval to submit less than 45 days in advance is dependent upon reviewer availability and is not guaranteed. Compliance with all ANCC criteria is required for approval irrespective of timelines.
