AMSTERDAM: Wolters Kluwer Health has acquired NurseTim, a US-based provider of nursing education solutions. NurseTim will become part of Wolters Kluwer’s Health Learning, Research & Practice (HLRP) business, which includes nursing education and practice solutions that help ensure students are ready for practice and nurses are prepared to deliver better patient care and outcomes.
NurseTim’s NurseThink provides a set of test preparation tools for faculty and students to prepare candidates for the Next Generation National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) in the U.S. In addition, the company provides hands-on nurse faculty training through conferences and webinars.
“Combining our nursing education portfolio and NurseTim will create a comprehensive suite of solutions that generates greater value for our customers,” commented Julie Stegman, Vice President of the Health LRP Nursing Segment at Wolters Kluwer. “NurseTim’s focus on faculty preparation and nurse clinical judgement training aligns well with our existing focus on ensuring nurses are clinically competent and prepared to practice.”

Through the creation of strategies and tools that are accessible to faculty and students, NurseTim is ushering the industry into a new era.
