NCSBN to Implement New NCLEX-RN Test Plan and Passing Standard This Year

The National Council of State Boards of Nursing, Inc. (NCSBN) announced that effective April 1, 2010, the NCLEX-RN examination will follow a new test plan. Furthermore, in conjuction with this new development, the said licensure examination will have a raised passing standard.

The decision of the NCSBN Board of Directors to raise the passing standard of the NCLEX-RN examination from the current standard of -0.21 logits to -0.16 logits came after the findings of a nine-person panel of experts assembled to perform a standard-setting procedure. Results of surveys conducted to nursing professionals also supported the need to raise the passing standard of the NLCEX-RN examination in response to the dynamic changes in health care delivery and nursing practice in the United States.

The NCSBN evaluates the passing standard and the NCLEX-RN examination test plan following a three-year cycle to ensure that entry-level nurses who pass the NCLEX-RN examination possess the necessary knowledge, skills, and abilities required to render safe and effective client care. The current NCLEX-RN examination passing standard and test plan was implemented in 2007.

The National Council of State Boards of Nursing, Inc. (NCSBN) is a non-profit organization. Its members include the boards of nursing in the 50 states and other U.S. territories.

    Hello,

    I'm Lhynnelli, one of the authors of NCLEX Reviewers (

    http://nclexreviewers.com ). We would like to inform you that we are

    on a HUGE process of putting up a complete nursing directory to our

    site and probably in the future with our sister sites as well. We

    wanted to know what you would want to have on your anchor text as we

    put up all the list of nursing related sites. Please give us a brief

    description of the site and the contact person as well (for

    verification).

    We will appreciate if you could also include our site in your

    blogroll or links page/area using NCLEX Review as the anchor text.
