Dean and Director Information

"Hello Directors/Deans,

I hope this finds you well and either enjoying spring break or looking forward to spring break. 

I wanted to share some information and resources available to programs regarding the Next Generation NCLEX (NGN). 

The NCSBN does not anticipate any type of process changes with them or with Pearson Vue.

The NCSBN consolidated all of their NCLEX resources to NCLEX.COM which will also be used for the NGN once they are close to launch. The new site was redesigned to provide the information and resources candidates need along their NCLEX journey. The site gives NCLEX candidates a more efficient and streamlined means of accessing the most current and accurate information about the examinations.

You can also sign up for the NGN newsletter here for any updates on the NGN Project.

Hope this is helpful information to you and we will share info as we receive anything new. 

Thank you,
