2021 PN Practice Analysis: Linking the NCLEX-PN Examination to Practice
This periodic performance of practice analysis (i.e., job analysis) study assists NCSBN in evaluating the validity of the NCLEX-PN test plan that guides content distribution of the licensure examination. This publication analyzes the U.S. population of entry-level licensed practical/vocational (LPN/VN) nurse practice, including the relevance of clinical judgment in the performance of nursing activities. Because changes can occur in LPN/VN practice, practice analyses are conducted on a three-year cycle.
