Important Announcement -- Written Examination Enhancements
The ABCN Board of Directors is pleased to announce an upcoming enhancement to the Written Examination (WE). Beginning in May/June of 2014, the ABCN WE will incorporate 25 additional “pre-test” items beyond the core 100 test items. The new pre-test items will provide important psychometric data to inform future editions of the exam, but will not count toward the final score. Exam scores will continue to be based on the core 100-item examination and the passing criterion cut-score (still 70%) will not change. To accommodate the increased length of the exam, candidates will receive increased seat time at Prometric centers.
The current, 100-item format will be administered for the last time during the next examination window in March 2014. Registration for this examination will close on January 24, 2014. For more information about ABCN WE registration, please email the ABCN Office (email@example.com). For questions regarding Prometric policies or testing center locations, please contact Prometric directly at www.prometric.com.
