NLN Center for Assessment and Evaluation

Janice Brewington, PhD, RN, FAAN
NLN Chief Program Officer

The NLN calls for multiple and fair measures for competency evaluation in nursing programs to ensure a diverse workforce. This center promotes valid, reliable, and evidence-based measurement and identifies best practices for establishing guidelines and standards of practice that recognize and value each test taker’s perspective, background, and context. In addition, the center provides tools and programs for the assessment of our other centers.

Surveys and Data

Policy-makers, planners, governmental agencies, regulators, and others use NLN workforce data as they design legislation, approve budgets, and formulate long-range educational goals. Deans, directors, and chairs are invited to participate in the 2016 NLN Biennial Schools of Nursing Survey, formerly known as the Annual Survey of Schools of Nursing. The biennial NLN Faculty Census Survey is planned for 2017. Contact Dr. Gideon Mazinga, senior research scientist, at 202-909-2528.
