The New NCLEX Makes Clinical Judgment a Top Priority

A short video clip discussing how the concept of clinical judgment has shaped the new NCLEX

Hear what Patrick Luna is thinking about the new NCLEX, in particular the concept of clinical judgment, and what it means for his courses.


Patrick Luna:

We had heard, and of course we’re familiar with the term clinical judgment. We knew what it was. We thought we were doing a pretty good job of creating nurses that were going to be able to practice effectively, safely, and effectively in the clinical setting. When we saw all of the research that came out and that presentation from the NCSBN that said that our agencies were seeing something different, and we realized we need to strengthen that partnership and really needed to look at what we were doing from a program standpoint.
