Hi! I am a RN in the PH. I guess am one of the 600 applicants affected.
I emailed Ms. ******** PhD, RN, the ASBN Program Coordinator prior to sending my application. I specifically informed her that I do not have a SSN. She sent the application packet (old one...meaning before the Oct 25, 2010 changes) and I was able to submit all forms and checks by Sept. 14, 2010.
Then I heard about the changes and worried about my application. My friend who applied with me also received a letter like 15isto2
. I haven't receive an email. I sent an email to Ms. ****** and wrote @ firstname.lastname@example.org
but have not heard from them.
I am hoping ARSBN will consider applicants who sent their requirements before Oct 25, 2010. ARSBN sent us the packet containing the forms and list of requirements thus it is logical that we submit the old requirements.
