    Hi everyone!! I've heard that the NCLEX gets updated by next year and it was last updated this 2010. I've read the changes that were made in 2010 increase in passing rate, more management question and decrease in questions of risk potential. Does anyone know what the changes are for the 2013 NCLEX exam? I went to the NCSBN website, i haven't found anything about the updated Nclex. Hope I can exam before April. Thanks guys for any response =)

    Jeez, I heard it'll decrease the chance for passing in about 5% of the takers. Good luck to us!

    Here's detailed info on NCLEX test plans. I read these before taking my exam and it really helped me formulate better study habits and also developed a plan to study smarter.
