Mountain Measurement is pleased to announce that it has partnered with the Anoka-Ramsey Community College & Anoka Technical College to offer the NCLEX® Program Reports Professional Development Seminars at the Willmar Conference Center on Wednesday April 18, 2018. These events will help nurse educators analyze and interpret the information contained in their NCLEX® Program Reports. Nursing education program administrators and educators from both the US and Canada are invited to attend. Attendees will be awarded continuing education credit for their participation in the Seminars.

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.
