Special Fee Discounts

IHS & Veterans



The WOCNCB's exam application fees are competitively priced and the fee structure includes substantial savings for nurses who apply for two or more certifications at the same time. The WOCNCB does not charge any annual certification maintenance fees.

Exam fees are reduced significantly when multiple specialty exams are in one exam application submission.

One Specialty: $395 (equates to $79/year x 5)
Two Specialties: $510 (equates to $102/year x 5)
Three Specialties: $610 (equates to $122/year x 5)
Four Specialties: $670 (equates to $134/year x 5)

All exam application fees must be submitted with the online exam application.

Note: Exams do not need to be scheduled/completed on the same day. Once your exam application is approved, you have a 12 month window to complete all exams.  Schedule exams to best fit your study schedule! If a three specialty exam application is approved, you may schedule each exam on separate dates (or the same date if you choose) as long as all exams are completed within the 12 month timeframe.

Candidates who choose to schedule multiple testing periods will be charged a one-time surcharge fee of $75.00.
