Once candidates have finished logging practice data they should submit it to the ABNS board and begin work on the application for oral examination and certification. The online application provides candidates with a centralized application portal where they can submit their application, upload supporting materials including the business associate agreement (link below), make credit card payment, request reference letters and check on the status of their application at any time. The new online system will streamline the application process and expedite ABNS credential committee review.
The business associate agreement should be downloaded, completed and uploaded with application at time of submission.
