Those who wish to save a little on their exam fee can register early to receive a $50 discount. Also members of INS receive a discount on the exam fee. Candidates will need to pay $335 as INS members or $460 as nonmembers. They do offer a discount for those joining INS at the time of applying and that amounts to $425 for registration fee.
Candidates will have four hours to complete the exam. The CRNI exam is administered at AMP testing centers located nationwide. After being accepted for the exam, candidates will be able to schedule their exam at a convenient testing center location. On the exam day, candidates should bring two forms of photo identification and be sure to arrive at least a few hours early.
