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.Contact us to learn more
Getting Ready for the Next-Generation NCLEX® (NGN): How to Shift from the Nursing Process to Clinical Judgment in Nursing
The nursing process has been used for over 50 years as the systematic, stepwise method for problem-solving to make safe, client-centered clinical decisions. In the early 1970s, the North American Nursing Diagnosis Association (NANDA, currently called NANDA-I) was formed to develop a common language to identify standardized nursing diagnoses based on a nurse’s interpretation of assessment data.
Using Graphic Organizers To Develop Clinical Judgment In Prelicensure Nursing Students
The term graphic organizers refers to a variety of learning tools that visually present relationships between and among pieces of knowledge or concepts. These tools can be very simple or more complex and can be used for students at any learning level. Graphic organizers can be educator-generated or learner-developed, depending on their specific purpose.
