US Military Base Testing Sites Now Available for SEE/NCE

The National Certification Examination (NCE) and Self-Evaluation Examination (SEE) are now available to active duty military at select US military base sites.  

The on-base Pearson VUE test centers support these individuals to become CRNAs during service and to help diminish the delay, cost and interruption associated with arranging state-side testing. The military channel supports NCE testing needs at select US military bases in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the Pacific. This option is only available to active duty military with valid government ID and authorization to enter the base.

Video: Working Together to Support Students and CRNAs

The NBCRNA, AANA, COA, and AANA Foundation have worked together on a series of videos for student registered nurse anesthetists to help describe each organization’s function. These videos will also help students better understand how they can interact with each organization as they progress through their training and career. The organizations work together to support nurse anesthetists throughout their career. See More at our Youtube channel!
