NCSBN depends on practicing nurses to assist in the NCLEX® item development process. Panel members travel to Chicago (all expenses paid) to write or review test items for the NCLEX® examination. On-site training is provided. As an NCLEX® panel member, you not only have the opportunity to earn contact hours, but also to network with your nursing colleagues on a national level. Panels are held throughout the year. This is your opportunity to contribute to the continued excellence of the nursing profession.
To qualify, you must be a registered nurse (RN) or a licensed practical/vocational nurse (LPN/VN) in the jurisdiction where you practice. Specific requirements for the volunteer panels also include:
