This is Nursing-Resource.com’s Nursing practice test system. You will be given a nursing test similar to an NCLEX exam. NCLEX (National Council Licensure Examination) is an examination for licensing of nurses in the United States. There are two types of NCLEX, the NCLEX-RN and the NCLEX-PN. This nursing practice test will be similar to NCLEX-RN.
Further information about the NCLEX Examination can be found here, along with the instructions on how to take the NCLEX exam.
About the Practice Test
In an NCLEX exam, test takers are expected to answer at least 75 questions in order to pass. You are advice to keep answering questions. Questions will get harder as you continue the test. Questions are in categories such as health promotion and maintenance, basic care and comfort, safety and infection control. Passing is determined by the computer system using a process called Computerized Adaptive Testing, or CAT. NCLEX exams are scored either pass or fail. Under this system, the computer program will keep asking a candidate to answer questions until it is clear that the candidate meets or fails to meet the desired standard. Some candidates may be asked to complete more than 200 questions.
Our system cannot mimic the CAT system provided by the NCSBN (National Council of State Boards of Nursing), however, we can provide a practice test that draws random questions from our database. The questions are randomly derived from any category. Each test has 100 items, and you are expected to get at least 75 correct answers. The NCLEX-RN exam has a time limit of 6 hours, and you are permitted to take a break. In our practice test, you are under pressure. Albeit, you can choose to time yourself or not. After submitting the test, the system will show you the correct answers and provide a rationale for each answer.
You are also required to register before taking the test.
Don’t worry, failing a test here does not mean you will fail the NCLEX test. It just so happen that our practice tests here are extremely difficult. This is to make sure you are well prepared.
