NCLEX Update, News Release


The NCSBN Board of Directors voted to raise the passing standard for the NCLEX-RN examination. The meeting was held in Dec 5-7, 2006. The board of directors increased the passing standard to 0.070 logits higher than the previous test plan.

Rationale: Entry-level nurses are believed to enter in the workforce with a higher level acuity of patient population. In response, the council believed that nurses are required a higher level of standard of knowledge, excellence, competence and care. Thus, the exam standard was increased.

Implication: The passing standard is higher for April 2007.

EntraLink remains on the forefront in terms of NCLEX module preparation and review content. The goal of the Intensive Review and Supplemental Learning Module is to always remain current and updated. Changes in the test plan will be reflected on the EntraLink Review Program.
