Northland’s Mary Amundson was selected as a volunteer item writer for the National Council of State Boards of Nursing Licensure Examination (NCLEX®)

NCSBN, headquartered in Chicago, is responsible for developing and administering the NCLEX-RN® and NCLEX-PN® examinations

Mary Amundson, a Practical Nursing Faculty member of Northland Community & Technical College was approved by the North Dakota and Minnesota Boards of Nursing and selected by NCSBN to participate on the NCLEX item development panel of subject matter experts that was held in Chicago, IL, on December 12-15, 2023. Amundson was selected on the basis of her clinical specialty and nursing expertise.

The NCLEX-RN® and NCLEX-PN® examinations identify those candidates who demonstrate minimal competence to practice nursing at the entry-level. Passing the NCLEX exam is one of the requirements necessary for attaining a nursing license/registration in the United States and participating Canadian provinces and territories.
