Passing Scores for Certification Examinations

Certified Urologic Nurse Practitioner (CUNP®) ~ The new passing score for the CBUNA Nurse Practitioner exam will be determined and set in October 2017.

The new passing score for the CBUNA Nurse Practitioner exam will not become available until after the exam on October 14, 2017. Due to the recent practice analysis survey, the test blueprint has changed. This necessitates that a group of experts in urology nursing convene to establish a new passing score, via the Angoff procedure. This ensures that the scoring for the test remains psychometrically sound. Candidates who sit for the exam in October 2017 will be subject to this new passing score, as they will be taking the new examination. As soon as the passing score is calculated, it will be posted on the CBUNA website.

Certified Urologic Registered Nurse (CURN®) ~ As of November 2012, the passing score for the CBUNA Registered Nurse exam was determined and set at 70% by using the Angoff Procedure.

Certified Urologic Associate (CUA) ~ As of October 2013, the new passing score for the CBUNA Associate exam was determined and set at 72% by using the Angoff Procedure.
