Hoefling, nurse practitioner, of Ida Grove Family Health Center and Denison Family Health Center, was approved by the Iowa Board of Nursing and selected by NCBSN to participate on the NCLEX item development panel of subject matter experts that was held in Chicago, Ill., on Oct. 13. Hoefling was one of seven nurses from across the nation to be selected for the assignment. He was nominated on the basis of clinical specialty and nursing expertise. All nurses in the United States and its four U.S. territories must take the NCLEX®.
