Written Examination Update

Updated: January 16, 2018

Important Announcement for the 2018 Written ExaminationIn 2018, the ABCN Written Examination will undergo item review and update, which will change the schedule of exams. Specifically, Windows 2 and 3 (previously scheduled for May and August) will be collapsed into a longer, four-week examination window in June and July. Given the potential inconvenience of this schedule change, candidates who register to take the Written Examination in June and July 2018 will be offered a one-time discount of $100 off the ABCN/ABPP examination registration fee (i.e., June or July 2018 exam = $200 registration + PSI seat fee).

We anticipate that score reports from the June and July 2018 examination window will be made available to candidates by late August.  We understand that some candidates may have planned to take the written examination in the May 2018 window in anticipation of submitting a Practice Sample by the October 1 deadline (for consideration of being seated at the Spring 2019 oral examination). To accommodate those candidates, ABCN will extend the Practice Sample deadline to October 15, 2018.
