Excelsior nursing exams

Nursing Students Online Learning


Hi everyone,

Can anyone tell me how many multiple choice questions are on the nursing theory exams 50, 60, 100?

Are there any math or multiple response questions? Also, what is time limit to complete the exam-2 hours?

Will the score/grade be available right after the exam?

Sorry, but I'm just a little nervous about the unknown.

The number of questions is listed in the exam content guide, and is usually 130 to 160 questions; depends on the exam. You have three hours to complete the exam. You do get your grade after the exam. It used to pop up on the screen, but now I think you have to wait for a printout at the front desk at the testing center (is that correct, current EC students?).

Yes, you get a print out as you leave. The testing center I go to really does a good job keeping the testing room quiet. A reaction (good or bad) in the testing room would just create noise, IMO.

Yes, I used to do the silent happy chair dance back when the grade showed up on the screen. LOL
