The AANPCB application process is an online process. Qualified candidates will be authorized to sit for an examination after completion of all didactic and clinical coursework required in the nurse practitioner portion of their program. When a candidate’s application is approved, AANPCB will send an eligibility-to-test email notification from      to the candidate. Once this email is sent, the candidate will have a 120-day window to take the examination. No exams can be scheduled until the candidate is authorized to test.
