Learn the essentials to fully prepare you and your program for the changes to come from NGN leaders Donna Ignatavicius and Linda Silvestri, including an analysis of the NGN and the greater emphasis on clinical judgment, steps to integrate NGN into your classroom, and resources to support NGN integration. Faculty will also receive tips on how to write unfolding case studies, an in-depth look at the new NGN item types, and test-taking strategies to share with students.
