American Board for Occupational Health Nurses (ABOHN)

The American Board for Occupational Health Nurses (ABOHN) has partnered with the Board of Certified Safety Professionals and Pearson VUE to deliver the computer-based ABOHN Safety Management specialty certification examination.

Certification Application

Before scheduling an examination appointment, you must have already:

  1. Applied for the specialty certification through ABOHN;
  2. Been notified of your eligibility to sit for the examination; and
  3. Paid an examination authorization fee to ABOHN.

Call ABOHN during normal business hours (U.S. Central Time) at 1-630-789-5799 for more information.


First-time test takers must create a Pearson VUE web account. Please note that account creation may require up to 24 hours. You will be notified by email when your account is activated. When creating your account and scheduling your test, you will need your Candidate ID from the Examination Authorization Letter ABOHN sent you after you purchased your examination authorization. Appointments may be made up to one business day in advance.

After you schedule your test, Pearson VUE will send a confirmation letter listing your test date, your testing time, the address and phone number of the test center, and directions to the test center.
