First, remember the test may have changed in question count, but it is still the same test. Don’t be stressed about 60 items being the new minimum. All along, the NCLEX-RN and NCLEX-PN examinations have been able to make a decision on the first 60 credited questions. The average number of items for first-time test takers is 118 questions for RN and 115 for PN. This means that most test takers won’t be affected by the new 130-question maximum.
