Date/Time: Tuesday, February 28, 3:00pm - 4:00pm ET
Speakers: Tommie L. Norris, Associate Dean Evaluation & Effectiveness, The University of TN Health Science Center, Memphis, TN-College of Nursing
 

Ensuring nursing students are successful on their licensure exams is a priority for all nursing education programs. The University of Tennessee Health Science Center College of Nursing has used the NCLEX-RN Test Plan provided by NCSBN and mapped it by coding questions in ExamSoft into the Client Needs Categories and Integrated Processes. Mapping to Bloom's Taxonomy provides a pre-assessment of the level of difficulty for each exam, and analysis of the exam can be tracked over the course and the length of the program. A gap analysis can then be used to quickly identify areas of strengths and areas for improvement to ensure students are prepared for all areas of the licensure exam. This webinar will present the benefits of using ExamSoft coding to identify student preparation and curriculum needs, and how this process has assisted UTHSC College of Nursing in consistently obtaining a 100% NCLEX pass rate over the last several years.
