Application to Take the August 2021 NPLEX

The period for application to take the August 2021 NPLEX Examinations is May 1-31, 2021. You must submit your application and payment to take or retake the NPLEX Part I – Biomedical Science or NPLEX Part II – Clinical Science Examination(s) via the links on the online Dashboard you create in the Applicant Portal on our website. You must create a new online Profile and password every time you apply to take an NPLEX Examination, regardless of whether you have created one for a previous exam administration. NABNE requests that you register to take the August 2021 NPLEX Examinations early in the application period, preferably in the first two weeks of May.


NABNE is committed to identifying and eliminating systemic bias, and to ensuring that the administration of the NPLEX examinations is fair to all examinees, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity, socioeconomic status, cultural orientation, or ability to equally access the examinations.

NPLEX is committed to creating examinations that are free from implicit bias.  While we recognize the impact of genetics, gender identity, disability, socioeconomic status, and cultural orientation on individuals, NPLEX cases do not include this information except when it is pertinent to diagnosis, treatment, or response to treatment. NPLEX examinations do not indicate a patient’s genetic ancestry unless it is pertinent to the case, and patient-preferred pronouns are specified and used only when gender identity might impact diagnosis, treatment, or management of the patient’s case.
