Nursing Test Writer

Posted on 30th September 2015 at 08:56

Lower Columbia College will have a hand in certifying the nation’s nurses, as LCC Nursing instructor Merry Bond is selected to help write questions for the test that ALL nurses must take to obtain their licenses. The college is now reporting that Bond is one of ten nurses from across the country who are being charged with writing the NCLEX exam. She was approved first at the state level, and then was chosen after a national meeting in August. Bond previously participated in the Practical Nurse Item Writing panel, which is used to certify Licensed Practical Nurses. Bond’s clinical specialty and nursing expertise helped land this assignment; she has been working at LCC since 2010; Bond has an A.A. in nursing from LCC, along with a B.S. from Washington State and a Masters from Capella University.
