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.
