For LPNs and LVNs Practicing in Nephrology

Certified Dialysis - Licensed Practical Nurse® (CD-LPN®)

Certified Dialysis - Licensed Vocational Nurse® (CD-LVN®)

As a result of very limited response from LPN/LVN applicants for the Certified Dialysis – Licensed Practical/Vocational Nurse (CD-LPN/LVN) certification examination, we regret to announce that the Nephrology Nursing Certification Commission (NNCC) will no longer offer this exam as of January 1, 2019.

For those planning to apply to for the CD-LPN/LVN certification examination, all examinations must be administered by December 31, 2018. As application processing time can take up to 4 weeks, we suggest submitting your application as soon as possible.

Questions should be directed to NNCC at 888-884-6622, or email
