“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

We source content from the leading publishers and the top rated NCLEX-RN writers in the country:

  • Alene Burke (RN, MSN, Certified Continuing Education – Florida Board of Nursing)
  • Connie Whitesides (Anesthesia Specialist, MSN, RN, CRNA, Chief Patient Care officer)

According to the NCSBN*, there are 4 integrated processes that are covered on the exam:

  • Nursing Process
  • Caring
  • Communication and Documentation
  • Teaching/Learning

We’ve developed our NCLEX RN board review questions around the content distribution suggested by the NCSBN.

NCLEX RN Exam Questions and Test Format:

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.
