Step-By-Step Instructions


You must visit the ProctorU website and create an account if you do not have one already. The email you receive from ProctorU by Friday, December 6, 2019 will contain a registration/login link.

Note: Please write down your login information.

Test Your Equipment

While logged into your ProctorU account, perform an equipment self-test to make sure your equipment is ready for exam day.

  • Detailed technical and system requirements information can be obtained here.
  • Be sure to perform the equipment test with the computer you will use to complete your exam
  • Be sure to perform the equipment test in the room and on the network that you will use to complete your exam.
  • Please be sure you have the latest version of Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Safari installed.

Caution: Hospital networks are often problematic due to firewall settings and increased security. Failure to test your equipment and network access according to these specifications may jeopardize your ability to take and/or complete the exam.


Schedule your Exam Time immediately after creating your account and performing your equipment check.  You can schedule your start time on your ProctorU dashboard.

Note: You MUST register prior to 8:00 am on Tuesday, December 10, 2019 in order to avoid additional fees. We recommend registering early to secure your desired time slot.


Prepare for exam day by reviewing the rules listed below:

1. Bring 2 forms of photo ID (i.e., driver’s license, passport, hospital badge). Be sure at least one of these is government issued.

2. No outside resources (i.e., articles, books, notes) will be allowed in the room.

3. No tablet devices will be allowed in the room.

4. No bathroom or other breaks will be allowed during the 2 hour exam period.

5. You may not be interrupted during the exam period.

6. Identify a quiet space with high-speed internet for the exam period. See step 2 for recommendations on preparing your environment for the exam.

7. Ensure your room is clear of all prohibited items–the proctor will check your area before the exam begins.

8. Prior to the exam, be sure to sign your pager out to another provider.

9. Make sure your cell phone is accessible and nearby – you may need this during the room check performed by the proctor.


  • Be sure to plug in your laptop while taking your exam.
  • Complete the ABNS Sample Exam included in your purchase in advance of exam day to familiarize yourself with the exam format.
