Welcome to the first issue of the NCLEX® Communiqué!
The National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN®) is pleased to begin our collaboration with the nurse regulatory bodies of Canada and all relevant stakeholders in providing an independent, objective, competence assessment examination (NCLEX-RN® Examination) for the purpose of licensure decision making. It is the intention of this communiqué to provide information in an open and transparent manner during this implementation transition.
This communiqué will provide a plethora of information, including timelines showing the progress towards implementation of the NCLEX-RN, highlight milestones along the way and clarify terminology. It will also provide information on the ongoing process of maintaining a high stakes, psychometrically sound, legally defensible, and secure computerized adaptive competence assessment. The communiqué will notify all stakeholders about upcoming educational opportunities and responses to frequently asked questions.
We value collaboration and welcome your feedback and input to make this a successful communiqué!
