NABNE is committed to identifying and eliminating systemic bias, and to ensuring that the administration of the NPLEX is fair to all examinees, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity, socioeconomic status, cultural orientation, or ability to equally access the examinations.
NPLEX is committed to creating examinations that are free from implicit bias. While we recognize the impact of genetics, gender identity, disability, socioeconomic status, and cultural orientation on individuals, NPLEX cases do not include this information except when it is pertinent to diagnosis, treatment, or response to treatment.
NPLEX examinations do not indicate a patient’s genetic ancestry unless it is pertinent to the case, and patient-preferred pronouns are specified and used only when gender identity might impact diagnosis, treatment, or management of the patient’s case.
