MSNCB Exam & MSNCB Certification Info
It appears there might be a misunderstanding in your question. There is no organization or certification body known as "MSNCB". The closest matches are: 1. MSNBC, which is a news television network, not a certification body. 2. MSNCB (Medical-Surgical Nursing Certification Board), which offers certification for medical-surgical nurses. Assuming you meant the latter, here's the information:
