NCSBN Launches New Online Course for Nursing Educators
CHICAGO, IL, Oct 03, 2013 (Marketwired via COMTEX) --
The National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN(R)),
www.ncsbn.org, launched a new online course, "Understanding the NCLEX
-- A Guide for Nursing Educators." This course joins an innovative
catalogue of courses for nursing students, faculty and nursing
professionals, offered by NCSBN's Learning Extension online campus.
Written by NCSBN NCLEX(R) Examinations department staff, this course
helps educators understand testing history, process and methodology.
Armed with this knowledge educators will be better equipped to help
calm fears and set the facts straight for their students.
Designed to accommodate the needs of busy nurse educators, the course
is provided in a flexible e-learning format allowing for three weeks
of unlimited 24-hour access for only $30. As educators work through
the course at their own pace they can complete an interactive
workbook that provides helpful links and a "cheat sheet" that can be
used to coach students. Also provided are nursing instructor
materials, including NCLEX Internet resources, a built-in glossary
and an online notepad. At the completion of the course, educators can
synthesize knowledge through an "Understanding the NCLEX -- A Guide
for Nursing Educators" Posttest. Those that score 75 percent or above
on the Posttest receive 3.0 contact hours for the course.

Founded March 15, 1978, as an independent not-for-profit
organization, NCSBN was created to lessen the burdens of state
governments and bring together boards of nursing (BONs) to act and
counsel together on matters of common interest. NCSBN's membership is
comprised of the BONs in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and
four U.S. territories -- American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana
Islands and the Virgin Islands. There are also 16 associate members
that are either nursing regulatory bodies or empowered regulatory
authorities from other countries or territories.
NCSBN Member Boards protect the public by ensuring that safe and
competent nursing care is provided by licensed nurses. These BONs
regulate more than 3 million licensed nurses, the second largest
group of licensed professionals in the U.S.
Mission: NCSBN provides education, service and research through
collaborative leadership to promote evidence-based regulatory
excellence for patient safety and public protection.
The statements and opinions expressed are those of NCSBN and not the
individual member state or territorial boards of nursing.
