The National Board for Respiratory Care Inc, Olathe, Kan, will update the content of both its entry level and advanced respiratory therapist credentialing exams based on the results of a survey.

The NBRC updates examination content for CRT and RRT credentials with a survey every 5 years. Surveys were mailed to a random sampling of respiratory therapists during the week of August 20, 2007.

Contemporary standards for tests indicate the NBRC must show that candidates’ examination scores  relate to their job performance.

Participation in the survey is considered a vital means of ensuring that content of NBRC examinations remains relevant, so if you have received a survey, please be sure to complete and submit by the deadline printed on the form.
