As we prepare to” Boldy go” into the Next Gen NCLEX©, let’s explore how the NCSBN Clinical Judgment Measurement Model (NCJMM) is used to integrate elements of nursing process and cognitive testing to create a more inclusive pathway towards clinical decision making. This has been a long time in the making but are we really prepared as educators and students to take on this challenge. By the time we are this conference, the new testing will be in effect 6 months, but what do you really know about the transition. Take a moment to reflect about your own transition experience to this new type of testing. How were you prepared as faculty? How did you prepare your students for this change? What about the student who started nursing school before the change was implemented and was using prior testing resources and then had to change midstream towards the new testing model? This session will focus on the practical aspects of the new testing method and how educators can enhance student engagement in preparing for their licensure exam. We will first look at the differences between the prior NCLEX© testing model and the Next Gen NCLEX© exam. We will then explore how the NCJMM is used as the framework for clinical scenario development based on submitted research. We will also focus on the types of questions that are used in this new testing model and how we can prepare students to make the jump to warp drive, that of being able to use critical thinking to direct their clinical decision making. So, join us as we beam up towards the Next Gen NCLEX© and “Boldly go” to help future nurses start their clinical practice.
