AANP verification for CA NP application

Specialties NP


Hello all,

I am a nurse practitioner certified by AANP and am in the process of state license in California. I submitted all the required documents except for the "Verification of Nurse Practitioner Certification by National Organization/Association form.". It seems like this one-page form requests the applicant's information and some other information filled out by AANP/ANCC. But the reason I am confused is that the AANP website only offers its own online verification order to the State Board, not a hardcopy or PDF things. I was wondering if NPs who have already completed this process- did you fill out any hard copy form regarding this, or did you just use the "Order a verification" function on the AANP website so that they accept requests online and send a verification to the CA Board online?


Below is what CA Board offers as a form.



And below is what AANP says.




I know the CA BON typically prefers forms to be submitted online.  However, I cannot verify whether this form is one of those.  Best to contact the CA BON via email.  They usually don't take too long to respond via email; I don't recommend trying to call.

Please keep in mind it's Summer time right now, so they may take longer because everybody is graduating and emailing.
