NBRC CRT Passing Score


Hi buddy here I am looking for info related to National Board for Respiratory Care (NBRC) CRT Passing Score so would you plz let me know about the same ??

National Board for Respiratory Care (NBRC) Certification Examination for Entry-Level Respiratory Therapists (CRT exam)

NBRC CRT and RRT board exams would be replaced by a new test called Therapist Multiple Choice (TMC) Examination.

The exam has 160 questions on it. 140 scored items and 20 items that do not contribute to scores.

But if you score anything from 110 to 140 correct answers, it means you have passed the exam, The new TMC Examination will have 2 cut scores.

Test scores equal to or greater than the low cut score will be associated with CRT.

Test scores equal to or greater than the high cut score will permit candidates to take the Clinical Simulation Examination

To understand the above statement, let me share a hypothetical example with numbers. The TMC exam has 140 scored questions. Then let’s say the NBRC sets the low cut score at 90 and the high cut score at 110.

A minimum of an associate degree from a respiratory therapist education program supported or accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care (CoARC) or accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) and graduated on or before November 11, 2009 OR hold the Canadian Society of Respiratory Therapists (CSRT) RRT credential.

Exam content

The Therapist Multiple-Choice Examination consists of 160 multiple-choice questions (140 scored items and 20 pretest items) distributed among three major content areas:

Patient Data Evaluation and Recommendations, Troubleshooting and Quality Control of Equipment and Infection Control, and Initiation and Modification of Interventions. Candidates are given three hours to complete the TMC Examination.
