In April 2023, the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NSCBN®) will roll out the Next Generation NCLEX® (NGN) item styles for the RN and PN national examinations. The most current resources for learning about Next Gen NCLEX® is on the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) website. Several of the resources provided here will guide you to that location. Novice and expert nurse educators should regularly visit this website as it will change as updates are continually added.


Dr. Phil Dickison, Ph.D., RN, is the Chief Officer of Operations & Examinations of NCSBN and is leading NGN research. Watch his recorded presentation provided by NurseTim, Inc. ®


The Clinical Judgment Measurement Model (CJMM) by NCSBN is the foundation of NGN. Taking the time to understand and apply this model to your teaching practices will create a habit of thinking and change how your students learn. Whether you are teaching in the classroom, lab, simulation, or clinical, your students need to experience the CJMM every day.
