National Board Certification is a standards-based assessment. Your score reflects the degree to which assessors were able to locate clear, consistent, and convincing evidence that you have met the National Board Standards specific to your certificate field. When scores are released, candidates receive results for each component attempted, as well as information to assist them in making decisions on whether or not to retake.
The National Board will release scores, and certification and renewal decisions for the current assessment cycle as follows in the table on the right. In the event an earlier date is identified, the National Board will update this page and will send an email notification to all candidates awaiting results.
