If I remember right the minimum is 75, it can offer more than 100 questions.
Minimum is 75, max is 265 (IIRC). However, on every test, regardless of how many questions, 15 of the questions are proposed future questions included in the exam for validation purposes, and do not count toward the final results of the exam. So, when the computer shuts off at 75 and you passed, you actually only answered 60 questions that counted
I know I'm not the only older (pre-CAT NCLEX) nurse who is deeply disturbed by the idea of people getting an RN license on the strength of having answered 60 questions to the computer's satisfaction. In the two-days-of-testing era, we had more questions on each individual area of nursing practice
than the maximum number of questions possible these days, and we were tested comprehensively on all basic areas of nursing practice and knowledge, not the "potluck" approach used now.
Of course, as usual, nobody asked me what I
thought when they made the change ...
