Ways to Connect with NCLEX
This newsletter highlights milestones in the transition to the NCLEX, and provides information about the exam development process and answers to frequently asked questions.
In December 2012, the Canadian Council of Registered Nurse Regulators and the National Council of State Boards of Nursing presented an NCLEX Examination Webinar. The webinar provided an overview of the role of regulatory examinations, why the NCLEX was selected for Canadian RN entry to practice, an introduction to the elements of computerized adaptive testing and NCLEX development, as well as information on how students and educators can prepare for the NCLEX in 2015.
NCLEX Volunteers for Item Development
NCSBN is pleased to have received a large number of qualified Canadian volunteers for item development panels and will keep a record of all applicants. Panel selection is an ongoing process and it may be several months before volunteers hear back from NCSBN regarding participation. Thank you to those volunteers who have expressed an interest to date.
