Nursing education program administrators and educators from both the US and Canada are invited to attend the 101 & 201 seminar. The 301 seminar will focus on the NCLEX-RN® Examination. Therefore, PN educators are discouraged from attending the 301 seminar. Please note that there is a 302 seminar, dedicated to the NCLEX-PN® Examination, in development. This will be the first time that the 401 seminar has been offered.

The NCLEX® Program Reports are an extremely valuable part of any program evaluation, and these seminars will give your faculty and administrators the tools and knowledge necessary to make the most of the information contained within them. Program evaluation is most effective when all stakeholders are involved. Therefore, we encourage programs to participate as a group.
