TIMELINE FOR NGN'S LAUNCH

WHAT'S AHEAD? YOU'VE GOT 2 YEARS TO PREPARE.

The NCSBN continues to collect data on item types from the results of candidates' answers to the Special Research Sections in both the RN and PN exams.

Additionally, the organization continues work toward building the technology to support measuring the new item types.

The next steps:

April 2022:

"Friends & family" beta testing begins. The NCSBN will select participants (nurse regulatory board staff, stakeholders in the measurement world, & others) to take the exam in actual test centers and provide feedback.

December 2022:

"Live" beta testing takes place. Actual candidates who are expected to graduate in April 2023 will take a fully functioning exam, but scoring and results will not count. Resulting data will be for internal NCSBN quality control purposes to ensure validity and reliability of the exam.

April 2023:

The Next Generation NCLEX launches.

The NCSBN plans to launch the NGN for RNs and PNs simultaneously.
