In CHAMPS Oncology's most recent blog post, Pass or Fail: NCRA Reveals Certified Tumor Registrar Exam Scores, Toni Hare shares her thoughts on the topic.
This week, the National Cancer Registrars Association (NCRA) revealed the certified tumor registrar exam scores to the registrars who took the exam last month.
Each exam participant has been notified by email to access their test results online. Scores on the major areas of the examination and on the total examination were also reported. Following the email, an official letter will be mailed to each individual, and those who have passed and are now certified tumor registrars will have their name featured in the next NCRA Connection.
All of us at CHAMPS Oncology would like to officially congratulate each of you who passed the exam. Passage of the certified tumor registrar exam marks achievement, fosters professional pride, and is nationally recognized in recruitment and retention of registry personnel.
If for some reason you did not pass this time around, don’t give up, reapply by Sept. 19 and take the exam again, Oct. 18 – Nov. 8. There are many resources on NCRA’s website to help you prepare for the certified tumor registrar exam, including:
•Live CTR Exam Prep Workshops
•Online CTR Practice Tests
•CTR Prep Publications
Also, make sure to visit the National Cancer Registrars Association's Council on Certification website to review upcoming application deadlines, testing dates and locations.
Hare closes her blog by asking readers if they have passed the certified tumor registrar exam, what their next steps to building a career in this industry are.
