The NCLEX-RN® Exam
The National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN® exam) has one purpose: To determine if it's safe for you to begin practice as an entry-level nurse. It is significantly different from any other test that you took in nursing school. While nursing school exams are knowledge-based, the NCLEX-RN tests application and analysis using the nursing knowledge you learned in nursing school. You will be tested on how you can use critical thinking skills to make nursing judgments.
NCLEX-RN® Test Format
The NCLEX-RN® exam is organized according to the framework, "Meeting Client Needs." There are 4 major categories and eight subcategories. Many nursing programs are based on the medical model where students take separate medical, pediatric, surgical, psychiatric, and obstetric classes. However, on the NCLEX-RN exam, all of the content is integrated.
Types of Questions
Questions are primarily multiple choice with four possible answer choices; however, there are also alternate question types. Alternate question types include multiple-response, fill-in-the-blank, hot spots, chart/exhibit and drag-and-drop. All questions involve integrated nursing content.
Taking the NCLEX-RN® Exam
How many questions are there?
Mostly Everyone answers a minimum of 75 questions to a maximum of 265 questions. Regardless of how many you answer, you will be given 15 experimental questions that do not count for or against you. The exam administrators use them to test for future questions on the examination.
How much time will I have?
There is no time limit for each individual question. You'll have a maximum of six hours to complete the exam, which includes a tutorial in the beginning. There are no mandatory breaks. However, there's an optional break after 2.5 hours of testing, and another optional break will be after 3.5 hours of testing.
NCLEX-RN® Grading System
The NCLEX-RN exam is pass or fail—there is no numerical score. A determination will be made at the conclusion of the exam as to whether you have passed or failed. However, the results will not be made available at the exam site. You'll be notified by your State Board of Nursing approximately two-four weeks after your test date.
What if I fail?
First of all, don't despair. You are not alone. So many students do not pass the NCLEX-RN exam on their first attempt. Failing the examination means that you did not successfully answer questions at or above the level of difficulty needed to pass. On this particular examination, you were unable to demonstrate your ability to provide safe and effective care.
If you fail in the examination, you will receive a diagnostic profile that evaluates your test performance. Read it carefully. You'll see how many questions you answered on the examination. The more questions you answered, the closer you came to passing.
The only one way you continue to get questions after the first 75 is if you are answering questions close to the level of difficulty need to pass. Use the diagnostic profile to determine your problem areas. You can then focus your preparation accordingly.
Should I test again?
Absolutely. Re-testing for the NCLEX-RN examination is permitted 45 days after the initial administration (unless you're in Georgia or Guam—contact SBON for details).
If you prepared on your own for the first time, you may want to consider a formal preparation option to help you focus your study time more effectively.
Regardless of the method you choose, do not forget to use the diagnostic profile to guide your preparation.
