Additional Contact Hour Fees

Programs 18 contact hours or greater, an additional fee of $20 per contact hour is required. (19 contact hours = $190; 20 contact hours = $210, etc.)

Non-chapter Programs: Programs 18 contact hours or greater, an additional fee of $40 per contact hour is required. (19 contact hours = $550; 20 contact hours = $590, etc.)

Calculating Fee for Concurrent Sessions

The application review fee is based on the total number of contact hours being offered, including all concurrent sessions, rather than the number of contact hours an individual participant may earn. When calculating contact hours for your application review fee payment, you must count the total number of MINUTES for ALL the presentations in your activity that will offer nursing contact hours and convert the total of those minutes to contact hours.

Example:

  Presentation Date

Length of Presentation (Minutes) for each session

Nursing Contact Hours (CH) for each session Attendee Contact Hours (CH)
Plenary Session        
9:00-11:00 am - Leading with Confidence 12/1/17 120 minutes 2.0 CH 2.0 CH
First Breakout Session        
1:00-2:30 pm - Volunteerism 12/1/17 90 minutes 1.5 CH 1.5 CH
1:00-2:30 pm - Managing Diversity 12/1/17 90 minutes 1.5 CH 1.5 CH
1:00-2:30 pm - Burnout 12/1/17 90 minutes 1.5 CH 1.5 CH
Second Breakout Session        
2:35-3:35 pm - Writing for Success 12/1/17 60 minutes 1.0 CH 1.0 CH
2:35-3:35 pm - Patient Education 12/1/17 60 minutes 1.0 CH 1.0 CH
2:35-3:35 pm - Technology Use 12/1/17 60 minutes 1.0 CH 1.0 CH
TOTAL   570 minutes 9.0 CH (total amount to request for activity) 4.5 CH (maximum amount attendee can receive)

For the example above:

  • Total amount of contact hours for this activity: 9.0 (amount used to calculate application review fee)
  • Amount of contact hours an attendee can receive: 4.5 (2.0 contact hours for attending the 9:00-11:00 am session, 1.5 contact hours for attending the 1:00-2:30 pm session and 1.0 contact hour for attending 2:35-3:35 pm)

Application review fee due for the example above:

  • ANNA Chapter: $100
  • Middle Category (ESRD Networks, Health Care Facilities, Access Centers, Nursing Homes): $360
  • Other Provider: $1,560

Non-ANNA Specialty Nursing Association Chapters

Add $10 to the ANNA Chapter Rate

Collaboration Fees: If ANNA chapters collaborate with a middle category organization, the fee is discounted by the corresponding chapter fee. For example, a $190 program would cost $140 (a difference of $50, the chapter rate). For programs supported by industry, please use the Other Providers category.

Commercial entities may not provide education (submit an application). Furthermore, commercial interest organizations can not take part in the planning of the learning activity and chapters may not submit an application on behalf of any commercial interest or corporate group.

Long-Term or Follow-Up Evaluation Fee

For applicants who choose the Self-Reported Change in Practice option for the Long-Term Evaluation will be required to pay an additional $15 for ANNA processing.

Enduring Material Information

Enduring material can be defined as, "Materials of educational content provided to the learner that are non-live activities such as pre-recorded audio or webinars or monographs that can be read or reviewed in print, or in an electronic format. This material is considered enduring material. A pilot study, the use of historical data or the use of a mergener calculation can be used to determine the number of contact hours to award for enduring material applications.”

The method of determining contact hours must be submitted with the enduring materials application.

The initial application fee must be paid when the application is submitted as with any live activity. Fees are are listed above. The application fee includes up to 10 attendees, additional attendees exceeding 10 will be $10 per head.

A list of attendees can be emailed to the National Office quarterly, (along with all necessary return paperwork) and an invoice will be sent to you.

If you have any questions in regards to enduring material, please contact Jackie Myers, Education Services Coordinator, at jackie.myers@annanurse.org

Submission Timelines / Late Fees

  • On Time – Applications received 45 or more days prior to the educational event are considered ON TIME and will be processed at the normal application fee.
  • Late – Applications submitted 44-30 days prior are considered LATE and require triple (3x) the application fee.
  • Any application submitted less than 30 days prior to the activity date will NOT be accepted for review.

  • Non-ANNA Chapters - 50 Certificates are included in the application fee. Additional packets of 20 certificates are available for $10 per packet.

Repeating Activities

A program can be repeated for a period of 2 years after the initial approval. To repeat a program, simply submit a Repeat Activity Request form and payment at least 30 days before the event. If speaker(s) are new (not part of original application) also submit new biographical data forms and evaluation forms (which includes conflicts of disclosure).

  • Fees are the same as the initial application fee; however, there is no additional certificate fee required (as there is when submitting the your application to be approved).
  • Note: The appropriate fee must be submitted each time the activity is repeated. For example, if a chapter presents a 1.0 contact hour activity in the morning and repeats the same activity in the afternoon, the fee would be $20 for the AM session and $20 for the PM session - a total fee of $40. Refer to Repeat Educational Activities in the Guidelines.
  • If your program falls in the “Other Provider” category, and you plan to repeat the program more than 5 times, you may contact us for a potential discount on repeat fees.
