Description

To ensure public protection, each jurisdiction requires candidates for practical nurse licensure to meet set requirements that include passing an examination that measures the competencies needed to perform safely and effectively as a newly licensed, entry-level practical nurse. NCSBN develops a licensure examination, the NCLEX-PN, which is used by jurisdictions to assist in making licensure decisions. Triennially, NCSBN conducts the NCLEX-PN Practice Analysis to analyze entry-level PN practice. Using the data collected from the practice analysis, NCSBN develops the NCLEX Test Plan which guides the selection of content and behaviors to be tested during NCLEX administration. In April 2017, the new 2017 NCLEX-PN Test Plan will become effective. This webinar will provide an overview of the 2017 NCLEX-PN Test Plan, including new information effective with the test plan revision.
