NABNE is taking steps to comply with CDC/PHAC, government, and local COVID-19 prevention guidelines and restrictions during the administration of the NPLEX Examinations. When you register to take the examination(s), you agree to abide by all measures NABNE is taking to keep examinees and testing staff safe and to prevent transmission of COVID-19. These measures include having your temperature taken before you enter the testing room, being required to wear a face mask, and complying with social/physical distancing guidelines.

When you choose a NABNE test site, you acknowledge that travel restrictions related to COVID-19 might prevent you from taking the examinations. For the 14 days prior to the exam administration, NABNE requires that you agree to follow current public safety COVID-19 prevention guidelines (i.e., wearing a mask when out in public, maintaining 6 ft. (2 m.) social distancing, avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces, washing or sanitizing your hands after each potential contagion contact).

In August 2022, the NPLEX Examinations will be administered at the following test sites:

Eastern Test Sites (CT, IL, ON, PR):

Western Test Sites (AZ, BC, CA, OR, WA):

There are different exam schedules for the Eastern and Western test sites. Be sure you follow the correct exam schedule for the specific test site you have selected.


NABNE cannot be held responsible if the NPLEX Examination(s) cannot be administered due to any circumstances beyond the control of NABNE that would make it inadvisable, illegal, or impossible to administer the examination(s) at the pre-determined time or on the pre-determined date. These circumstances include, but are not limited to: COVID-19 restrictions, inclement weather, floods, earthquakes, fires, other natural disasters, power failures, strikes, curtailment of transportation systems, epidemics, accidents, explosions, riots or civil disorder, terrorism, acts of war or other national emergencies, or if the test site at the sponsoring institution is closed or compromised. If any of these events occur, your only recourse will be to take the examination(s) at the next regularly scheduled administration.
