Application Period for the February 2021 NPLEX

The period for application to take the February 2021 NPLEX Part II – Clinical Science Examinations is November 1-30, 2020. The online application period will close at midnight PST on December 1st. NABNE recommends that you register to take the February 2021 NPLEX examinations early in the application period, preferably within the first two weeks of November. This will ensure that NABNE staff is able to make adequate testing arrangements well in advance of the exam dates.



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.
