Questions about NCLEX

  1. I have a question, my cousin just took the NCLEX and she told me that this was the last time they are doing tests of this nature where you choose the answer. She said they are starting to do fill in the blank. Does anyone know anything about this?

    They are adding different types of questions to the original format... The majority of the test will still be multiple choice, but you may have fill in the blank, choose all that match, pictures/graphs to answer questions from etc... But NO they are not getting rid of multiple choice

    Yes, after May this year the new, more difficult-to-pass NCLEX is making its grand appearance. :uhoh21: This test may include a FEW multiple-choice-multiple-answer questions, and/or a few fill-in-the-blank questions.
    This may be of help:

    Scroll down to page 21. Included on this page is an example of a multiple choice, multiple answer question which may be appearing on the NCLEX.

    I know factually, that the new NCLEX will have more pharmacology on it...So I would know drugs and their side effects and interactions...I know this because I sit on a review panel for the NCLEX RN....And yes there will be fill in the blank...More than likely dosage calculations....pretty much all I can say...about it...So study the drugs and more drugs....Hope this helps....

    from what i read it looks as though it is primarily drug calculations.......so let none of us worry. it will be alright ....

    Thanks for this posting. I am a 20 year nursing vet, who wants to write the NCLEX. I have been out of bedside nursing for many years. But, I have lots of experience with meds so that may be my salvation.
