New Boards Format Started April1

  1. I was just wondering if anyone has taken boards since April 1 with the new format of fill in the blank, more than one right answer etc. I failed earlier this year and I've got to retake them. Just wondering how much of the new type questions were on the exam. Thanks for any input.

    You may get none of the new questions and you may get a few. You definitely will not get an exam with all new format, so i would not worry about it.

    Good luck with taking your exam!!!

    Thanks a lot for responding!!!!! I'm sure I am speaking for a lot of other new grads who will be taking the NCLEX when I say that you've just relieved some anxiety!!!!!!

    The new format will just be 2% of the exam according to ncsbn. So if you get 75 questions, new format will just be 1 or 2. However there will now be 13-19% pharmacology instead of the old 5-11%. For more info go to ncsbn.org. Hope this helps.
