2019 CBNC Examinations - Administration is now complete
The 2019 CBNC Examination window ended on Tuesday, December 3rd. Scoring is underway.

Results for the 2019 CBNC examination will be published online in each Candidate's MY APCA account within approximately 10 weeks from the close of the examination administration (December 3rd). Exam results will not be available via telephone, fax or email.

The APCA Directory of Certificants, our online verification database, will be updated approximately two weeks after the score letters are published. Certificates will be distributed in 2020. Candidates who applied as “Testamurs” and were successful on the examination must provide CBNC with documentation of having passed the Cardiology, Nuclear Medicine or Radiology boards and a copy of their current unrestricted medical license to be granted Diplomate status. 

Dates for the 2020 examinations will be posted as soon as they are available. Please check back soon for updated information or use the Contact Us option above to request information be sent to you once it becomes available. 

New Recertification Lapse Fee - Effective 2020
Beginning in March 2020, for individuals who have allowed their certification(s) to lapse and who wish to regain Diplomate status for the certification(s), a fee of $250, per examination, will be assessed following receipt of a passing score on the desired recertification examination(s).

Did you recently pass your ABIM Cardiovascular Disease, ABR or ABNM Boards?
If you recently became certified with the American Board of Radiology, the American Board of Nuclear Medicine, or in a Cardiovascular Specialty with ABIM and are a CBNC Testamur - you can now convert to a Diplomate!

  3. Obtain a picture or PDF version of your current, unconditional and unrestricted medical license. Please make sure the expiration date is showing.

Due to the high volume of conversion requests, please note that we will process requests in the order in which they are received.
