Mountain Measurement and the Missouri League for Nursing are pleased to announce that we will be offering NCLEX® Program Reports Professional Development Seminars at Cox College in Springfield, MO on Friday October 19, 2018.

These events will 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 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.

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.
