Introducing our newest service!
NCLEX Success Assessment Survey (N-SAS)
The N-SAS provides an assessment of the extent to which the policies and strategies your nursing program uses to prepare students for the NCLEX licensing examination—and ultimately, successful practice—meet best practices. Focusing in on the six factors evidence suggests have the greatest influence on NCLEX scores, information is collected from a select group of your key administrators and faculty leaders via an online survey. We then analyze the data and develop a prioritized plan of interventions to improve your program’s first-time NCLEX-pass rate. This service allows you to quickly and affordably identify and address the issues that will have the biggest impact on your NCLEX scores.
