WHAT’S NEW

NABNE will be testing a new website feature in conjunction with the February 2019 NPLEX exam administration (this is a trial only, and the exam-result-posting feature may or may not be continued, depending on the issues that are encountered).

Approximately six (6) weeks after the exam administration, exam results (Pass/Fail only) will be posted to online User Profiles. Examinees will be notified by email when these results can be viewed online. Official hard copies of exam results will be sent to examinees by regular mail within the next week.

NABNE will make every attempt to ensure that the exam results posted online are correct. Given the inherent hazards of electronic distribution, and because implementation of this feature will require manual transfer of data (which introduces the possibility of human error), NABNE cannot guarantee that the information posted online is accurate. The official hard copy of the NPLEX exam result(s) you receive in the mail will provide accurate and detailed information.

If you took the NPLEX Part II – Clinical Science Examinations, NABNE will also send an official copy of your exam results to the single regulatory authority you indicated on your Part II – Clinical Science Examination Application. Please note that there will be approximately two weeks between the time exam results have been posted online and when they are received by the regulatory authorities. Calls/emails to NABNE during this time will not expedite the time it takes for you to be issued a license to practice.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR THOSE PLANNING TO PRACTISE IN ONTARIO

The College of Naturopaths of Ontario (CONO), the regulatory authority in the Province of Ontario, has announced that it will be producing its own entry-to-practise (ETP) examinations.  NABNE will continue to administer both the NPLEX Part I and Part II Examinations in Toronto for the seeable future; however:

  • The College of Naturopaths of Ontario will accept passing NPLEX Part II – Clinical Science exam results as evidence of eligibility to practise as an ND in Ontario only until March 31, 2019.  This means that if you plan to practise in Ontario, to have your NPLEX results accepted by CONO, the February 2019 NPLEX administration is your last opportunity to pass the NPLEX Part II – Clinical Science Examinations. After that date, you will be required to pass the CONO Clinical ETP examinations if you want to practice as an ND in Ontario.
  • The College of Naturopaths of Ontario will accept passing NPLEX Part I – Biomedical exam results only until November 14, 2020.  This means that, in Ontario, if you want your NPLEX Part I results to be accepted by CONO as evidence of your biomedical knowledge, the August 2020 NPLEX administration will be your last opportunity to pass the NPLEX Part I – Biomedical Science Examination. After that date, you will be required to pass the CONO Part I examination if you want to practise as an ND in Ontario.
