NCLEX® Program Reports Professional Development Seminars
Mountain Measurement is pleased to announce that it will be offering the NCLEX® Program Reports Professional Development Seminars at Humber College on Tuesday April 30, 2019.
These events are being held in the greater Toronto, ON area on the day after the NCLEX Conference for Canadian Educators produced by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing.
The content of both events are markedly different and nursing educators and administrators are encouraged to attend both events.
The primary objectives of these NCLEX® Program Reports Professional Development Seminars is to help nurse educators analyze and interpret the information contained in their program's NCLEX® Program Reports.
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. All participants are strongly encouraged to bring a copy of their NCLEX® Program Reports.
