Join a National Council of State Boards of Nursing Overview Session

The National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) plans to begin using new question types in the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) in April 2023. As preparation for these upcoming changes, NCSBN, in partnership with Minnesota State, is holding two overview sessions.

These NSCBN overview sessions will be a detailed review of the various changes coming to the NCLEX-RN and NCLEX-PN exams, effective April 2023, including the rationales and research behind the changes.

Topics covered will be:

  • the NCSBN Clinical Judgment Measurement Model
  • the clinical judgment case study and associated item types
  • “standalone” item types that will provide additional measurement of clinical judgment
  • new partial credit scoring methods used to evaluate candidate responses
  • updates to the overall structure of the examinations

Note these sessions will not cover features or functionality within D2L Brightspace, nor 3rd party software and integrations (like ExamSoft or H5P).

The speaker will also highlight available resources from NCSBN and allow time for audience Q & A.
