ARE YOU READY TO FACE THE NEW NCLEX?
The NCLEX-RN exam is a standardized test that each state's board of nursing uses to determine if it's safe for a for a graduate of a registered nursing (RN) program to begin practicing as an entry-level nurse.
With a percentage of the test being updated with a new measurement model, new item types, and new scoring systems, we took it as an opportunity to take our entire NCLEX review course to the next level. Face every new question with proven strategies—and gain complete confidence.
With preparation and support from hundreds of licensed nurses, we’ll provide you with the tools you need to break down each question and systematically approach the answer.
Start preparing 3 months before the NCLEX exam and do about 75 practice questions per day. This way, you can evaluate your performance and learn from your mistakes so you don’t repeat them on test day.
Frequently asked questions
What is the Next Generation NCLEX (NGN)?
The Next Generation NCLEX (NGN) is an updated version of the NCLEX that will further assess nursing candidates' abilities to apply clinical judgment skills and make safe, effective decisions. It will include new question types and case sets that are mapped to the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) Clinical Judgement Measurement Model. NGN will be administered starting in April 2023.
How many questions are on the NCLEX-RN?
It depends. The new NCLEX will serve up between 85 to 150 questions and will stop as soon as your competency level has been identified.
How do you pass the NCLEX-RN?
To pass the NCLEX-RN, you have to demonstrate that your level of competency is above the minimum standard. As you answer questions correctly, you'll be given increasingly difficult questions, and you will need to work your way up in difficulty so the NCLEX-RN algorithm can identify your passing-level competency with 95% confidence. Answering questions correctly will require both nursing content knowledge and critical thinking skills; at Kaplan, we recommend you study with a mix of content, strategy, and practice.
How long does it take to get NCLEX-RN results?
Official results will be sent to you approximately 6 weeks after taking the NCLEX-RN. Some states offer a paid quick results service which allows you to access your "unofficial" results in 2 business days.
How many times can you take the NCLEX-RN?
Ideally you'll only take the NCLEX-RN one time. However, if necessary you are allowed to retest 45 days after the administration of your previous exam. Candidates are permitted to take the exam 8 times in a calendar year, depending on the state.
The best guarantee is one you won’t need. But you get it anyway.
