New NCLEX

  1. Slated to graduate come May and we are hearing word that we may be taking the first roll out of the new NCLEX. Word is that the new NCLEX will be a series of case studies with accompanying questions rather than a bunch of random NCLEX questions. Just curious if anyone has heard anything about this?

    From what I've read, the NCLEX "switches gears" every 3 years, so next year will be 3 years since it was "switched up". When I took the NCLEX last month, the research questions at the end were all related to a case study. I had to read the test study, and then the question read something like " based on the case study, what is this person at risk for" or "what would be you nurses diagnoses for this person". I do not know if these types of questions will begin to appear on the NCLEX in 2019 though.

    Ahh, I deleted my response because I thought the entire thread was super old, but now I see you are currently asking still - I should not have deleted!

    The current NCLEX plan, exam and passing standard is good through March 21, 2019. So it should not change before then. GL!
