CNAMB Exam Fee

The long-term benefits of holding a credential often outweigh the cost of initial certification.

During the online application process, nurses can elect to register for a single exam take or benefit from the CNAMB Take 2 program. The CNAMB Take 2 program allows a CNAMB-eligible nurse to take the exam twice in a 12-month period if the first attempt is unsuccessful. For more information on the Take 2 program, please see the CNAMB Handbook.

CCI offers volume discounts for health systems seeking to certify multiple nurses. Download the CNAMB Take 2 Facility Enrollment Forms to enroll.
