How to apply for CPNE?
You can apply for your CPNE test date once you’re eligible. You’ll need to have a healthcare provider complete the CPNE Health Status Report (provided in the CPNE portal) to include with your CPNE application. Your application and supporting documents will be reviewed within 7-10 business days.
