Next Generation NCLEXAn Enhanced NCLEX
The NGN Project
The NGN launched on April 1, 2023 to better measure nursing candidates’ clinical judgment and decision making abilities through the use of innovative item types. The need to measure this stemmed from information gathered during the 2013-2014 NCSBN Strategic Practice Analysis, which showed newly licensed nurses are increasingly expected to make complex decisions while caring for patients.NGN NewsNGN Videos
The Development Process
As part of the NGN project, NCSBN conducted several phases of research that are shown in the model. If the evidence during any individual step indicated that potential innovations would not support the rigor and quality of the NCLEX, the project was reexamined at all levels.
