NCLEX testing to change in APRIL 2005

  1. I was reading on the NCLEX website.. I found this to be intersting.. Considering im going to be taking my test in a few months...

    " All practical/vocational nurse candidates must answer a minimum of 85 items. The maximum number of items that a practical/vocational nurse candidate may answer is 205 during a five-hour maximum testing period. The maximum five-hour time limit to complete the examination includes the tutorial, sample questions and all breaks. "

    Here is where I found it if you would like to read some more about it...
