OFFERING LIVE REMOTE PROCTORING
Starting with the June 5 to June 19, 2021 testing period, we are pleased to announce that there are now two ways to take the Multiple Sclerosis Nursing International Certification Examination or the MSCS (MS certified specialist). You have the option of taking the exam either in a Prometric Testing Center or via Live Remote Proctoring in your home or another quiet location. Before you choose this option, please read the FAQ's for Live Remote Proctoring at:
For your examination to be delivered via live remote proctoring in your home or another quiet distraction free location, you must provide a computer with a camera, microphone, and an internet connection to allow real-time communication with a remote proctor. The remote proctoring option requires candidates to download ProProctor™ software from Prometric to establish remote access to the candidate's computer. This application includes Prometric's test engine software, as well as a lockdown browser to ensure secure test delivery. More details can be found in the FAQ’s as noted above.
