CRNI® Accreditations

The CRNI®s dual accreditations and a proven track record of more than 30 years assure patients, employers, and peers that the CRNI® credential is a credible and reliable method of validating a nurse’s experience in the specialty of infusion therapy.

Scaled and Raw Passing Scores

Score reports indicate a candidate’s exam result—either pass or fail. They also provide additional details in the form of raw scores by major content category.

  • Raw scores indicate the number of items a candidate has answered correctly. The CRNI® exam consists of 140 multiple-choice items. Twenty (20) out of the 140 items are pretest items, which are not scored. The data collected from the unscored items will be used to evaluate the performance of these items for future exam development
  • Scaled scores are used to provide a consistent scale of measurement for various exam forms, and the same scaled score represents the same level of knowledge.  The total number of correct responses to the 120 scored items on each CRNI® exam is scaled to the distribution of 0 to 99 with the passing score set at 70. Scaled scores are reported to take into account the potential for varying levels of difficulty between exams. The scaled score required to pass is always 70 for CRNI® exams which is intended to represent the same amount of knowledge required to earn the CRNI® credential.

Role Delineation Study

INCC appointed a Role Delineation Advisory Committee (RDAC) in February 2019 to conduct the activities necessary to identify responsibilities of practitioners and develop examination specifications. The diversity of this group was reflective of the practice of infusion nursing throughout the United States, and all RDAC members had demonstrated expertise in their respective areas of specialization.

The purpose of the role delineation study, also known as a practice analysis or job analysis, was to identify the necessary knowledge and tasks involved in infusion nursing practice as a first step in the continuing development of a job-related certification examination. INCC requested the services of PSI Services to design and conduct a study that would provide the support necessary to develop specifications upon which content valid certification examination could be built for infusion nurses.
