It is ideal that nominees have experience in writing objective test questions, though NBPHE will accept nominees who are willing to learn. Online training will be made available to all item-writers. Each item writer will be asked to submit at least ten items approximately two months after the online training.  CPH recertification credits may be earned through this activity.

To self-nominate as an item-writer or item-reviewer, please complete this questionnaire no later than November 30.
