Congratulations!: Practical Nursing Instructor Selected for NCLEX Review Panel

Faculty member Ms. Sherri Andrews, MSN, has been selected by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing to participate in the development and review of National Council Licensure Examination-Practical Nursing (NCLEX-PN) test!   Her selection is an honor that will allow Ms. Andrews to contribute to the growth of the profession as she helps develop test items of appropriate rigor for selecting quality licensed practical nurses.  As a participant in the program, Ms. Andrews will also make other valuable professional contacts with other nurses.

As you may know, the NCLEX-PN is an important credentialing exam for licensed practical nurses (LPNs).  The NCLEX-PN tests knowledge across many areas including but not limited to establishing a safe and effective care environment, safety and infection control, health promotion and maintenance, meeting patient psychosocial needs, and meeting patient physiological needs.  Our program graduates take the NCLEX-PN, helping to ensure their employers and patients of their skills in providing quality practical nursing care.

With us, Ms. Andrews teaches Practical Nursing II, including supervising students in their clinical assignments, through the Governor's Health Sciences Academy.  She is pictured above at our 2015 Practical Nursing Graduation and with successful students.  Congratulations again, Ms. Andrews!
