NGN is Here: Part Five – Adapting NextGen with your LMS - Online Course


This course is available for FREE to Sigma Members.

Current Learning Management Systems (LMS) do not necessarily lend themselves to Next Generation NCLEX (NGN) item formats. While these barriers are not easily remedied, we have developed and are implementing creative ways to integrate the clinical judgment style questions by utilizing the formats supported by our LMS. Join us as we discuss how to optimize your LMS for NGN content.

This course will retire after 2nd May 2026.

Learning Outcomes:
After participating in this course, learners will be able to:

  • Demonstrate clinical judgement test items without NCSBN formatting
  • Illustrate the formatting of multiple LMS with various NGN style questions
  • Identify ways to increase critical thinking without extra preparatory materials
