To ensure public protection, each jurisdiction requires candidates for registered 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 registered nurse. NCSBN develops a licensure examination, the NCLEX-RN, which is used by jurisdictions to assist in making licensure decisions. Triennially, NCSBN conducts the NCLEX-RN Practice Analysis to analyze entry-level RN 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 2016, the new 2016 NCLEX-RN Test Plan will become effective. This webinar will provide an overview of the 2016 NCLEX-RN Test Plan, including new information effective with the test plan revision.
