Chris Musillo on Nurse and Allied Health Immigration

New NCLEX Standards

Rate this Entry

 

The National Council of State Boards of Nursing, Inc. (NCSBN) will raise the passing standard for the NCLEX-RN Examination (the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses), effective April 1, 2010. The new passing standard is -0.16 logits, which is 0.05 logits higher than the previous standard of -0.21. The methodology behind the decision-making is explained in NCSBN's 2010 NCLEX-RN Test Plan.

It is expected that this will reduce the number of qualified nurses entering the marketplace, which should grow the nursing shortage. The US Department of Labor says that nursing will be the occupation in shortest supply in this upcoming decade.
