Combined 101 & 201 Seminars: Wednesday June 27, 2018 from 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM

101 - An Introduction to the NCLEX® Program Reports
201 - Analyzing and Interpreting your NCLEX® Program Reports

Mountain Measurement is pleased to announce that it will be offering NCLEX® Program Reports Professional Development Seminars at Portland's Ecotrust on Wednesday and Thursday June 27-28, 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 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.

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.

*New* 202 Seminar: Thursday June 28, 2018 from 8:30 AM to 12:30 PM

202 - Identifying Trends in your Program's Performance using the Supplemental CSV Files

The 202 Seminar is a "lab" that will allow nurse educators, analysts and program administrators to spend some time analyzing their Supplemental CSV files with the support of the producers of the NCLEX® Program Reports. Developed in response to the question, "What's in the Supplemental CSV Files and what do we do with them?" the 202 Seminar will help familiarize participants with the NCLEX® Program Reports Supplemental CSV files. This Seminar will provide a tour of the CSV Files, some analysis strategies, and detailed information on how to use the CSV files to monitor and compare performance. Upon completion, participants will have the skills necessary to use the Supplemental CSV files to compare the performance of different programs and to monitor performance trends over time.

Although every program can benefit from the Supplemental CSV Files, the files are most beneficial to programs interested in identifying trends in the performance of their graduates over time. Those organizations that have multiple educational programs, for example a BSN and an ADN program, also have the opportunity to compare and contrast the performance of each program more thoroughly through an analysis using the Supplemental CSV Files.

The pre-requisites for the new 202 Seminar include completion of the 101 Seminar "An Introduction to the NCLEX® Program Reports" and the 201 Seminar "Analyzing and Interpreting your NCLEX® Program Reports." All 202 participants must bring a laptop or other device capable of running spreadsheet, data visualization or statistical analysis software.
