Around the globe, growing numbers of nurses are studying and taking courses online. New computer-assisted proctoring technologies are enabling nursing students, trainees and seasoned nurses to take exams at home to earn their degrees and gain their certifications to deliver vital services.
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.

As educators transition exams online, exam and institutional integrity must be maintained.

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.
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.
Distance learning allows nurses to enhance their qualifications and fit required certifications into busy schedules. Online proctoring allows students to book their tests whenever and almost wherever it suits. In a period of unprecedented disruption, it enabled schools to meet urgent healthcare needs.
