The goal of this study was to share with others the implementation process and strategies we utilized to enhance our curriculum when taking into consideration the Next Gen NCLEX changes. A survey was conducted to identify perceived deficits in the understanding of NGN by faculty and students. To evaluate understanding, questions were developed based upon the NCSBN webpage regarding NGN. Questions were designed to capture basic understanding of NGN concepts, participant comfort with clinical judgment, and NGN components using a Likert scale. Results were then used to develop strategies to better utilize the clinical judgement model within didactic courses, clinical courses, and examinations. The focus became identifying strategies/activities that would increase faculty knowledge about the clinical judgement model and comfortability with teaching the model. By addressing gaps in faculty knowledge and application of the clinical judgement model, the clinical judgement model could be consistently reinforced throughout the program. The information contained within the proposed presentation analyzes the successes, failures, and evaluation methods that were used in a large ADN nursing program to prepare students to use clinical judgment and be practice ready. Lastly, recommendations are provided that can be implemented to continue to develop faculty and student expertise with this subject matter.
