NABNE OBLIGATION TO ADMINISTER EXAMINATIONS
NABNE shall not be held responsible if the NPLEX cannot be administered due to any circumstances beyond the control of NABNE that would make it inadvisable, illegal, unsafe, or impossible to administer the examinations at the pre-determined time or on the pre-determined date. These circumstances include, but are not limited to: COVID-19 restrictions, inclement weather, floods, earthquakes, fires, other natural disasters, power failures, strikes, curtailment of transportation systems, epidemics, accidents, explosions, riots or civil disorder, terrorism, acts of war or other national emergencies, or if the test site at the sponsoring institution is closed or compromised. If any of these events occur, your only recourse will be to take the examinations at the next regularly scheduled administration.
