Follow the directions in the Student Guide to NLN Testing brochure for registering for your preferred exam.

First register for the National League for Nursing’s NACE I Foundations of Nursing Examination on the next available testing date. Have payment method available when you register. On the NLN website, you will see all three exams listed for each test date. Do NOT register for all three tests on the same test date.

If you are successful on the NACE I Foundations of Nursing Examination, then you are eligible to register for the NACE I Nursing Care of Childbearing Family and the NACE I Nursing Care of Child Examination on the next available testing date. This is a two part exam so applicants must register for both parts on the same exam date. If both the NACE I Nursing Care of Childbearing Family and the NACE I Nursing Care of Child Examination are not taken on the same date, the applicant must retake both parts of the exam on the same exam date. See LPN to ADN Advanced Placement Information and Application Packet for further details.
