Endorsement of NLN "Fair Testing Imperative in Nursing Education Guidelines"
October 08, 2012
The Minnesota Board of Nursing has formally endorsed the National League for Nursing (NLN) "The Fair Testing Imperative in Nursing Education Guidelines" published by the NLN in February, 2012.
The guidelines developed by the NLN emerged after extensive review of the issues surrounding "high stakes testing"; that is, the use of a single standardized test in determining progression and/or graduation from a nursing program.
In addition to the guidelines, the document offers specific recommendations for faculty, deans, directors and chairs to support implementation.
