FailSafe Program

The re-vamped FailSafe Program is now LIVE!

To better serve participating organizations and increase access for smaller hospital populations, MSNCB has redesigned the FailSafe program. The MSNCB FailSafe Program allows eligible nurses at participating facilities to apply for any MSNCB certification exam twice within a twelve (12) month period, while only paying for the first attempt.

Your organization can purchase vouchers at three tiers: 3, 5, or 10 nurses can use these vouchers to apply for the CMSRN or CAVRN exam within your contract year. If your organization is unable to assign all vouchers within the year, then you can purchase additional vouchers for the next year and rollover unused vouchers. You can also purchase additional vouchers within the same year. In order to learn more and purchase vouchers, please email


IMPORTANT for Current Contracted FailSafe Institutions

If your institution is currently under a FailSafe contract, no changes will be taking place on how you manage exams for your nurses. Once your contract expires, you will be required to switch over to the new voucher system to maintain the benefits of FailSafe. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at
