People pass between anywhere from the minimum to the maximum. You can't base how many questions you might receive based off of how many questions other people had. In the end, it is the passing or failing that counts. No on has asked me how many questions I had to answer to pass the NCLEX. All they care about is that I have a nursing license.

There are, I'm sure, about a hundred threads about how many questions people got and how they studied. Since it has been thoroughly discussed, you might find some really good information if you search it.

Statistical average is around 120 for US educated applicants. All statistics are readily available on the NCSBN website.

Thanks and yes, I know that the important factor is passing. Of course a person wouldn't just take a test for the number of questions it had. I was just curious to know about the questions. I do understand that regardless of the questions, if you don't get the license you haven't got squat. I hear so many people say, "I only had 76 questions" or "I had 126 questions." So, uh, yeah...I asked.

NCLEX-PN, 2005: I passed with the 85-question minimum.
NCLEX-RN, 2010: I passed with the 75-question minimum.
I entered both exams well-prepared to lessen the chances of having to sit at the testing center in front of a computer screen for several hours.

Having followed this board for years, I bet I've seen someone who could say they had every possible number of questions. For PN, that would be 120 people with every quantity of questions between min and max, and for RN, 190 people with every quantity of questions between min and max.
I'll save the trouble of all of them posting, LOL, and say that much :)
