Certification Fee

CNOR Exam Fee

The long-term benefits of holding a credential often outweigh the cost of initial certification. Over the five-year certification cycle of the CNOR, the exam fee ends up costing less than a quarter per day.

During the online application process, nurses can elect to register for a single exam take or benefit from the CNOR Take 2 program. The CNOR Take 2 program allows a CNOR-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 CNOR Handbook. CCI offers volume discounts for health systems seeking to certify multiple nurses. Please contact our customer service department for details.
