Hundreds of nurse educators, clinicians and managers who work with
entry-level nurses contribute to the development of the NCLEX-RN and
NCLEX-PN licensing exams. Below are the three panels for which
volunteers are selected:
Item Writing - Item writers create the items that are used for the NCLEX.
Item Review - Item reviewers examine the items that are created by item writers.
Panel of Judges - The panel of judges recommends potential NCLEX passing standards to the NCSBN Board of Directors.
