Mountain Measurement is pleased to announce that it will be offering NCLEX® Program Reports Professional Development Seminars at the Rhode Island Nursing Education Center on Thursday and Friday June 7-8, 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 101 & 201 Seminars. However, we strongly recommend that participants complete the 101 & 201 Seminars before attending the 301 & 401 Seminars. The 301 Seminar will focus on the NCLEX-RN® Examination. Therefore, PN educators are discouraged from attending the 301 Seminar. Please note that the 302 Seminar, dedicated to the NCLEX-PN® Examination, is in development.

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.
