San Rafael, CA

Mountain Measurement is pleased to announce that it will be offering NCLEX® Program Reports Professional Development Seminars at Dominican University California on Friday, June 7, 2019. The primary objective of the NCLEX® Program Reports Professional Development Seminars is to help nurse educators analyze and interpret the information contained in their program's NCLEX® Program Reports. Nursing education program administrators and educators from both the US and Canada are invited to attend the 101 & 201 Seminars.

Mountain Measurement is able to offer continuing education credit to all individuals completing the Seminars through the Alabama Board of Nursing (Provider Number ABNP1516). The amount of continuing education credit varies by Seminar.

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.
