The National Nurse Aide Assessment Program (NNAAP) is the largest nurse aide certification exam program in the U.S. with over 200,000 paper and practical exams administered annually.

The Medication Aide Certification Examination (MACE) is a national medication aide certification exam that will be administered to nurse aides who choose to receive additional training to become certified medication aides. 

 NCSBN develops the NNAAP and MACE exams and administers them with the contractual assistance of a national test service.
