US Military Base Testing Sites Now Available for SEE/NCE

July 2020 - NBCRNA Credentialing staff have been working with Pearson VUE representatives for several months to provide National Certification Examination (NCE) and Self-Evaluation Examination (SEE) testing access to active duty military at select US military base sites. Periodically, individuals have been deployed soon after completing their nurse anesthesia educational program. This has applied to both civilian students who have post-graduation commitments with the armed services as well as active duty service in our military programs. In these cases, the graduate may experience a significant delay post-deployment until they are able to take their NCE. On-base testing provides defense employees with the opportunity to conveniently test where they serve. 

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, if that option is even available. The military channel went live on June 29 and can now support 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.

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.
