What are some of the basic facts about the NCMHCE?
According to the NBCC (the developers of the exam), "The National Clinical Mental Health Counseling Examination consists of 10 simulated clinical mental health counseling cases that are designed to sample a broad area of competencies, not merely the recall of isolated facts. The cases assess clinical problem-solving ability, including identifying, analyzing, diagnosing and treating clinical issues. Each case is divided into approximately five to eight sections that are classified as either information gathering or decision-making." Candidates are given 3 hours for the exam.
You will be required to send an official, sealed academic transcript along with your registration and fee. The entire registration process can take up to six weeks, so plan ahead.
Once your registration has been accepted, you will be contacted by Pearson VUE to schedule your exam date.
