Using the NCLEX Blueprint as a guide for testing in a Baccalaureate Nursing Program

August 13, 2015 Sherri Ward

Presented by: Sherri Ward, MNSc, RN, is a Clinical instructor at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences College of Nursing Baccalaureate Program A high NCLEX-RN pass rate is the ultimate goal of any nursing program and for the past three years the UAMS CON has had a pass rate of 90% or greater. When adopting a new computerized testing software, it would be important to evaluate available features that would support student success in completing the program and passing the NCLEX exam on their first attempt. Using the NCLEX-RN exam blueprint as a guide for building tests throughout the curriculum would allow for students to be best prepared for this licensure exam. In order for the NCLEX-RN exam blueprint to be mimicked, assigning Client Needs and Bloom's categories is necessary. Longitudinal reports across curriculum that identifies a student's strengths and weaknesses in regards to the NCLEX-RN blueprint would guide the student in their studies for the licensure exam and hopefully lead them to a passing score at first attempt.
