• Because we are currently living with unprecedented uncertainty due to COVID-19, it is impossible to know what the situation will be like in August. NABNE is moving forward on the assumption that it will be possible to administer the NPLEX Examinations as planned on August 4-7, 2020. Circumstances continue to change rapidly, however, and the exam administration might need to be postponed in order to comply with evolving public safety requirements. NABNE will continue to monitor developments of the COVID-19 crisis and will update the website regarding the August 2020 NPLEX exam administration if changes must be made.
