Volunteer for the NCLEX Item Development Program!
Canadian registered nurses can now volunteer for the NCLEX Item Development Program.
The National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) develops the NCLEX-RN used to measure the competencies needed to perform safely and effectively as an entry-level registered nurse. An important step in this process is the NCLEX Item Development program, a key component in creating and maintaining high quality examination items. The development of the NCLEX examination depends on qualified registered nurse volunteers from all jurisdictions that use the NCLEX for entry to practice. Canadian nurses now have the opportunity to become part of this process, and contribute to the NCLEX-RN exam bank prior to the exam being offered in Canada in January 2015.
By volunteering, you may be selected to participate as an item writer (RN with Master’s degree) or item reviewer (practising RNs).
Some of the benefits of volunteering are:
• Opportunity to contribute to the continued excellence in the nursing profession
• International networking
• Gaining experience and skill in test development
