Thank you for your patience as we navigate the constraints imposed by COVID-19.
We have been working 7 days a week to make all the arrangements to safely administer the NPLEX examinations as scheduled. Unfortunately, some factors are beyond our control. The governor of California has effectively closed all possible test site venues, forcing us to cancel the exam administration in California (only). Anyone who had registered to take the examinations in San Diego will be receiving an email with more information.
As of July 15, 2020, NABNE is scheduled to administer the examinations in AZ, CT, IL, OR, WA, PR, BC, and ON. In light of rapidly changing conditions and requirements in various states and provinces, we will provide updates if information changes.
Although NABNE had recently issued a statement requiring 14-day self-quarantine OR a negative COVID-19 test result for examinees who were traveling to the test site from other states/provinces, the NABNE Board has decided that these are not viable options for examinees at this point in time. Your safety, as well as that of other examinees and staff, is of utmost importance, and we are taking all reasonable precautions to that end. You have an obligation to do your part to protect your classmates (other examinees) and the NABNE proctors in this regard as well. Instead of requiring self-quarantine or negative COVID-19 test results, the Board is asking that every examinee make a commitment to follow COVID-prevention precautions (regarding the wearing of masks and observing 6-ft. (2-m.) social distancing whenever you are out in public) for the 14 days prior to and during the exam administration. You agree to stay at home if you are sick. This commitment will be validated by your signature on the NABNE Statement of Social Obligation. This document will be sent to you 2 weeks you in advance of the exam administration; you will be asked to sign it and bring it with you to the test site.
Some states and provinces have specific jurisdictional requirements. If you are traveling from outside the state/province, you must determine what these requirements are and abide by them.
