Survey of failed candidates

30 Aug 2017 2:44 PM | Deleted user

Does anyone perform a survey of candidates who failed the certification exam? If so in what time frame do you send out the survey? What are some topics you cover in the survey?

Thank you.

    Denise, the Radiology Nursing Certification Board (RNCB) does not survey candidates who failed the certification exam. These candidates are sent a letter notifying them they did not pass along with instructions on how to register to take the exam again. We wave the initial registration fee if they take the exam within 1 year.

    At the end of our exam we do ask for comments. At our item writing meeting, we review these comments and do further research if several candidates have the same issue or suggestion.
