Hey all, just wondering what exams need to be passed in order to work as a RN? I'm a prospective nursing student just trying to get an idea of what to expect.
I see a lot of talk about the NCLEX....is that the only one? Is that a national or a regional exam? Are there state boards that must be passed as well before you can earn a license? Are there any clinical exams or just written exams?
How much does the NCLEX cost to take and how many times per year is it offered? Is it a multiple choice test and approx. how many questions? Is there a maximum amount of times that the test can be re-taken if one fails it?
Thanks in advance for your help!
