Exam Scheduling and Cancellation

Scheduling a Computer-Based Testing Appointment

You will receive a confirmation postcard and email after you have successfully applied for the exam. You may schedule an exam appointment online or by telephone once you receive the postcard or email.

If you have not received your postcard or email within eight weeks after applying for an exam, please contact AACN Customer Care at (800) 899-2226 or certcorp@aacn.org.

Verify on your confirmation postcard that you are registered for the correct exam and promptly notify AACN Customer Care of any error. You may only take the exam for which you make the appointment; the exam type cannot be changed at the testing site. 

Exams are administered by appointment only, Monday through Saturday, at 9:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. 

Individuals are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. You must make your appointment at least four business days before the desired testing date. 

Schedule online at www.goAMP.com or by phone at (888) 519-9901. Be prepared to confirm a date and location for testing and provide your AACN Customer ID #, preceded by the letter "C" in place of your social security number. This number will be on the label of your confirmation postcard.

AACN Certification Corporation does not collect social security numbers from candidates. When the appointment is made, you will be given a time to report to the site. You will not be sent an admission ticket, so make a note of the time and date. 

Unscheduled walk-in candidates and those arriving more than 15 minutes after a scheduled appointment will not be admitted to the testing site. 

Refer to the Certification Exam Policy Handbook for a list of days on which the exams are not offered.
