NGN for All

Elsevier is proud to introduce NGN for All—an initiative to get all students ready for the types of questions they’ll receive on the Next Generation NCLEX®. NGN questions will now be integrated and available in everyone’s HESI Next Generation exams where content is available. Once students complete an exam, they’ll see reporting on how they performed on these new questions. While these new items are optional and won’t impact final HESI scores, they allow you to prepare students early and put your program one step ahead towards being NGN-ready.
