Kaplan Nursing NCLEX White Paper

As educators, we strive to prepare our students for success on their NCLEX exams―not simply so that they pass the test, but also so they are equipped with the skills and knowledge they will need to care for patients in the real world. The key to ensuring their preparedness is solid clinical thinking skills.

In the new Kaplan Nursing white paper, “Engaging Students in Study and Remediation to Promote Critical Thinking Skills,” I take a deep dive into ways to engage students in remediation to promote positive student outcomes and improve critical thinking.

DOWNLOAD "Engaging Students in Study and Remediation to Promote Critical Thinking Skills," to read the white paper.

The white paper offers detailed information and analysis around:

  • Understanding the benefits of remediation for building clinical thinking skills
  • How to overcome the barriers to remediation―both from a student’s and an educator’s perspective
  • Practical and actionable strategies for increasing student engagement on an individual and cohort level

“It is important for faculty to partner with the student to identify areas that need improvement and to discover individualized learning strategies aimed at what works best for students. Together, they can set goals and a timeline.”
