Job description:

As an Elsevier Testing Manager, you will be creating HESI exams (standardized assessments used in nursing programs) for RN and PN nursing programs across the US and Canada.  These exams help faculty to determine students’ knowledge levels and readiness to take nursing licensure exams.
