“My name is Vania and I graduated from RN school almost a year ago. BoardVitals have been a huge help to me studying for the exam. You're allowed to pick the amount of questions, the type of questions from different categories. So I can make sure I can focus on what I have difficulty in and make sure I remembered the stuff I knew already. BoardVitals is a great source and I would recommend this to anyone who will be taking the RN exam.”Vania, RN
Safe and Effective Care Environment
All registered nurse candidates must answer a minimum of 75 items, though most nurses that we have interviewed end up taking more questions, as the computer adaptive test often requires additional data points.
The test can last up to 265 questions, however. Most of the test is in multiple choice question (MCQ) format, but there are also questions that include multiple response, fill-in-the-blank, and hot spots. From what we’ve heard, there are very few hot-spotting questions.
We have tried to match the exam format very closely… we include mostly MCQ and multiple response questions and also several NCLEX fill-in-the-blank types. These tend to be primarily calculations.
