The NCLEX-RN exam is administered to candidates using computerized adaptive testing (CAT). With CAT, each test that is given is completely unique. There are a large pool of questions in the computer that are organized by category and difficulty level. After each answer the computer calculates an ability estimate of the test taker, and chooses the next question that will best measure this ability. The computer will continue to present new questions in this manner until a pass or fail decision is made.
You will be required to answer at least 75 questions and at most 265 questions. There is a maximum time limit of 6 hours, which includes the tutorial, the sample questions, and all of your breaks. It is a challenging test, so be sure to do plenty studying. Work through as many practice questions as possible, starting with our free NCLEX-RN practice exam.
