Kaplan Nursing, a unit of its Test Prep services that prepares students for the NCLEX-RN Exam, has announced a new partnership with Examity, the leading provider of online proctoring and identify verification, to make it easier for nursing schools to administer high-quality assessments.

Examity’s seamless and secure proctoring solution offers a streamlined testing process and helps eliminate scheduling and facility constraints. With the current nationwide nursing shortage predicted to persist through 2025, demand for solutions that increase access to high-quality nursing education will continue to increase.

Erika Blumenthal, Vice President and General Manager of Kaplan Nursing, tells, “We’re committed to leveraging the potential of emerging technologies to enhance the accessibility of educational resources for our school partners and their students. Examity was the only proctoring solution to provide an online proctoring platform that met our specific needs — providing our partners with both flexibility and security as they administer assessments.”

Solutions to nursing assessment barriers are especially helpful in rural areas or regions without easy access to nursing schools. Kaplan Nursing is working to address that need through a comprehensive online review program for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX), taught by masters’ educated instructors with additional resources including English learning tools.

Online nursing programs offer the potential to provide high-quality educational opportunities at an unprecedented scale, making the need for secure, flexible testing environments essential for nursing schools around the country.
