THE CHEESE HAS MOVED

ITEM WRITING AND TEST DEVELOPMENT FOR CJ (CLINICAL JUDGMENT)
Based on the NCSBN’s Next Generation NCLEX  (NGN) Project

 

What is NGN?

  • What is NGN?
  • Why should we make a change? Is this an ethical issue?
  • How do we write items that test appropriately for these decision making skills?
  • How do we develop ideas for items that are most useful for this model?
  • Are there “Bottom Line Questions” that will make item writing easier?
  • How will we grade these exams?
  • What about the standard measurements that we are currently using?
This is a one-day consultation/workshop that answers these and many other questions regarding safe nursing practice and success on the NGN.

Teaching Clinical Judgement

  • How do we prepare students to pass exams that are based on CJ (clinical judgment)?
  • How will our lecture and simulation lab assist with this change?
  • How soon should this change take place?
  • How will this change be evaluated?
  • Is there a useful outline that we can follow to make this change easier?
  • How do we prepare ourselves and students emotionally for this change?
This is a second consultation/workshop that answers these and many other questions regarding the teaching of safe nursing practice and frameworks to insure that safety.

Evaluating Clinical Judgement

  • Is there a legal and ethical issue regarding the failure to fail progression of a nursing student who does not demonstrate safe practice?
  • When does competency begin?
  • How does the CJ model affect our clinical evaluation tools?
  • Does our evaluation depend on written tools and projects or what the student DOES about a patient problem?
  • How do we evaluate risk, priority and urgency?
  • How do we evaluate the ability of what does the student DOES about it?
  • How do we evaluate the ability to justify actions?
  • What about our external accreditation providers?
This is the 3rd one-day consultation/workshop program that answers these questions, plus brings everything together from the previous two workshops.These workshops provide a far better advantage for faculty groups that utilize them in succession. After the first workshop, the second and third may be combined into one if this better fits the program’s needs.
