Faculty are invited to join their colleagues in learning how to incorporate active learning strategies in both didactic and clinical course components based on the NCLEX® Test Plan. Active learning strategies that promote clinical judgment skills will be presented. Participants will learn about the components of the Next Generation NCLEX®’s (NGN) theoretical framework that will be the foundation for the NCSBN’s design of future NCLEX® test plans.

Practices designed to enhance teacher-made exams today to better prepare their students for the current licensure examination, and the NGN of the future, will be described. Through the intentional building of a thinking community of active learners, faculty will be rewarded in developing and accurately assessing students who are critical thinkers and decision-makers
