Beckley native chosen for licensure panel

Regina G. Goldwire, RN, MSN, formerly Regina J. Gray of Beckley, was one of seven nurses from across the nation selected to a volunteer item writer panel of judges for the National Council of State Boards of Nursing Licensure Examination held April 29-May 2 in Chicago.

NCSBN is responsible for developing and administering the NCLEX-RN® and NCLEX-PN® licensing exams.

Goldwire 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®. The licensing exam identifies those candidates who demonstrate minimal competence to practice nursing at the entry level. Passing the NCLEX® exam is one of the requirements necessary for attaining a nursing license.

Goldwire graduated from Wood-row Wilson High school in 1989. She has served in the military and has been a nurse for 12 years, a registered nurse for eight years and has had a master’s degree for four years.

She received a post-graduate certificate with the distention of Family Nurse Practitioner on May 10 from Tennessee State University.

Goldwire is looking to apply for a doctorate degree late next year.

She attributes her work ethic and values to her wonderful parents, Eugene and Patty Gray, who still reside in Beckley.
