The Wailea Community Association is a long time supporter of numerous educational activities on Maui. Recently, the association helped pay testing fees for Maui nurses. This is a very competitive program on Maui and it accepts only 30 candidates each year.
Because the only authorized testing site is the Pearson VUE Testing Center on Oʻahu, the cost totals close to $450 per graduate. This includes the cost of interisland airfare, the test fee, and ground transportation from the airport to the testing site and back. The test is not currently available online or on Maui.
