This site is about Health Licensing Exams around the world and we are now starting to cover Nursing related news from all around the world. Today we would like to introduce you about one of the exciting competition from Khan Academy for NCLEX-RN (wikipedia) Students and instructors.
While returning from the hospital on a hectic day I was thinking about the new standards and the way we are lagging behind at many things. Where we are not learning these new things and recent advancements in our field. We are not upgrading our knowledge as we should. As we know Necessity is the mother of invention many ideas came and go but some ideas are worth implementation. Pondering over such an idea to continue the education just like Continuous Medication Education (CME) sessions we get. I realized there should be something similar about new trends beyond from the usual class learning tempo and with fun as well.
