The NCLEX-RN® is given to determine a candidate’s ability to work as an entry-level nurse. It is a computer-adaptive test (CAT), which means each person’s testing experience is different. The computer administers each question based on your performance on previous questions. Your questions will be appropriately challenging and at a level that the computer determines you have a 50% chance of answering correctly.
You will continue to receive questions until the computer establishes that you have a 95% chance of achieving a passing score on the test, or until the time limit or the maximum number of questions is reached. The minimum number of questions is 75 and the maximum is 265. Of the items you are given, 15 of them are experimental questions that do not count toward the final score, but you will not know which ones these are.
These are the categories and subcategories of NCLEX-RN® test questions. To ensure adequate coverage of the broad first and last categories on this list, we provide preparation materials for each of the subcategories listed under them. Our study sections are the topics shown in italics, here:
Safe and Effective Care Environment
• Management of Care (20%)
• Safety and Infection Control (12%)
Health Promotion and Maintenance (9%)
Psychosocial Integrity (9%)
• Basic Care and Comfort (9%)
• Pharmacological and Parenteral Therapies (15%)
• Reduction of Risk Potential (12%)
• Physiological Adaptation (14%)
