Apply to Take the August 2022 NPLEX Examinations

The period for application to take the August 2022 NPLEX Examinations will be open May 1-31, 2022.  If you are planning to take the NPLEX Examinations in August 2022, you may create an online profile and submit your application and fees during that time only. NABNE recommends that you register to take the August 2022 NPLEX Examinations within the first two weeks of May.  This will ensure that NABNE staff is able to make adequate testing arrangements well in advance of the exam dates.  In addition, if you wait until May 31st to apply and you need technical assistance in order to submit your application, NABNE staff may not be available to help you.


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.
