Description

Are you wondering how NCSBN ensures fairness for all groups taking the REx-PN examination? Will candidates with comparable nursing knowledge perform similarly on exam items, regardless of their gender, ethnicity, or other factors irrelevant to nursing practice? This session will describe how Sensitivity and Differential Item Functioning (DIF) panels contribute to the fairness and legal defensibility of an exam.
