Expedited Review Procedure

Processing Time and Cost

To shorten normal processing time to 5 business days, complete the Certification Expedite Review Request Form [pdf] and include nonrefundable $200 processing fee.

Expedite Review Policy

All certification applications are subject to the same review and scrutiny and must meet all ANCC eligibility requirements. No eligibility criteria will be waived. Furthermore, if an application is incomplete or ANCC requires additional information to determine eligibility for certification, the review of the application may not be completed within 5 days and additional delay may result. Please note the nonrefundable expedite review fee is $200.

Fax Your Expedite Request

Please fax (do not mail) your Certification Expedite Review Request Form [pdf] to 301.628.5233. Mailing this form with your certification application will delay processing. If you both fax and mail it, you will be double charged.

Certification Verification

ANCC encourages you to complete and fax the Institutional Verification Request Form [pdf] or Individual Verification Request Form [pdf] with the Certification Expedite Request Form to ensure the fastest verification processing time after your exam.
