Examination Dates and Fees
Testing for CNL certification is web-based and conducted onsite at the candidate’s school of nursing. Program Directors are responsible for setting the testing date within the testing period and notifying CNC (firstname.lastname@example.org). As an alternative, the exam may be administered at a SMT testing center if an Exam Site is not conveniently located.
