Call for Volunteers- NCSBN NCLEX and NGN Item Development Opportunities

NCSBN is currently recruiting qualified nurses to serve on upcoming NCLEX and Next Generation NCLEX (NGN) item development panels. Opportunities are coming up to participate on item review and item writing panels for the RN examination.

The NCLEX is designed to test the knowledge, skills and abilities essential to safe and effective nursing practice at the entry level. The process of developing exam items (questions) requires multiple steps and involves many qualified volunteers to write and review items.

The qualifications required for nurses interested in participating in the Item Development Program are outlined in the NCLEX Item Development brochure. Please note that all volunteer opportunities are held in downtown Chicago and travel expenses, including airfare, lodging and meals, are covered.

Individuals interested in volunteering may submit an online application via NCSBN website. Click here to submit a volunteer application.
