The NCLEX® Program Reports are an extremely valuable part of any program evaluation, and this seminar 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.
