Online Proctoring for Nursing

Nursing is currently one of the most in-demand professions in the US, with more than 3.8 million registered nurses employed across various healthcare contexts. For years, distance learning has allowed nurses to enhance their qualifications and fit required certifications into busy schedules. Online proctoring helps shape the educational landscape in nursing, allowing students to book their tests whenever and almost wherever it suits.

Why PSI?

PSI provides schools, universities and institutions with a market-leading, secure alternative to traditional testing methods that can be seamlessly integrated with existing learning management or exam delivery systems. As educators transition exams online, exam and institutional integrity must be maintained.

PSI’s online proctoring solutions allow educators to:

  • Accurately authenticate the student’s identity
  • Easily identify, and report possible misconduct during exams
  • Directly answer any questions or concerns from students in real time 

What Sets Us Apart?

Unlike any other testing provider, PSI is a part of the nurse's career journey from beginning to end. Our higher education solutions proctor students while they learn, test their knowledge and get them certified for various nursing roles after graduation, and finally deliver assessments such as NurseFit to identify the best nursing candidates as they seek employment and eventually hire staff as they transition into managers.

Human-focused, Technology Assisted Proctoring

Online proctoring algorithms can detect potential misconduct on the part of the student, automatically flagging breaches such as a student looking down at a cell phone or capturing an image of their screen. Combining algorithms with human review makes the system both more accurate and more reliable. Any action identified by AI as potential academic dishonesty should always be reviewed by a trained human proctor to prevent honest students from being accused of cheating.

  • PSI never relies on AI alone to determine whether your students fail or pass their exams
  • AI technologies assist human proctors in detecting any malpractice, while not replacing the human element of proctoring a test
  • It's crucial to clearly explain any use of data to students and have a trained human proctor review AI output
