To apply for your Newborn Care Specialist certification you must log in and pay before you begin.  To log in go to the top of the page and click on Register. After you register you must wait for the confirmation email from the NCSA.  You will then click on the link in that email.  Then you can log in. Do all of this on your laptop not your IPAD.  After you fill in your information you will be able to store your forms and uploads on line before you submit them all at the same time.

After you pay for the application/certification or test be sure to follow the link BACK to the NCSA to complete your application or test. DO ALL THIS ON YOUR LAPTOP NOT YOUR NOTEBOOK.
