Next Generation NCLEX Preparedness Training for Nursing Students
April 27, 2023
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM ET
This webinar is part of the Mentoring Joint Learning Collaborative.
The Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action invites nursing students, and faculty, to join the Campaign’s NCLEX Trainers for a special training on the Next Generation NCLEX.
The training will provide nursing students with:
• Information on the changes in the Next Generation NCLEX;
• Best strategies to answer clinical judgement questions;
• Additional resources available to test your knowledge prior to the exam.
For the past several years, the Campaign has been working with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Resources and Services Administration, Office of Minority Health, Indian Health Services, and several national nursing organizations to prioritize diversifying the nursing workforce and support schools of nursing with creating or updating their mentor programs. The Campaign, an initiative of AARP Foundation, AARP and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, hosts monthly learning collaboratives, offered through its mentoring initiative, to provide peer-to-peer support and technical assistance to deans and faculty from Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic-serving and American Indian/Alaska Native-serving institutions.
