Mountain Measurement is pleased to announce that it will be offering NCLEX® Program Reports Professional Development Seminars at Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, NC on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday September 24-26, 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 RN and PN programs in the US and Canada are invited to attend. There will be a separate 302 Seminar designed for PN educators that will be offered in the Spring of 2019.

All participants are encouraged to also attend the 2018 NCSBN NCLEX® Conference being held at the Westin Charlotte on Monday September 24th or Tuesday September 25th, 2018.

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.
