Candidates on the WR and CSE historically have demonstrated different pass rates (Table 1).2,4,5 The CSE has shown smaller differences between firsttime and repeater pass rates than the WR, as well as a higher retest rate. In 2000, the introduction of computer-based testing resulted in an initial higher pass rate on the WR and CSE, although the difference between new and repeat examinees has remained stable.4 Testing for the RRT credential requires completion of two examinations, and no other nursing or allied health profession requires two separate and different examination processes for one credential.6
