    The exam format is purely multiple choice and nothing else. It is done not by paper and pen but by a computer. Whatever you have learned while you were in college are the type of questions they typically ask. The questions are sorted out automatically by set, which means that set A do not contain the same questions as set B and the number of items may vary from 50 to 75. Passing mark is 40%.

    I hope this helps.

    I took my exam about 3 years ago. Newly arrived staff nurses from the hospital where I worked will take their exams a month from now. I will give you an update.
