WHat was the majority of questions on your NCLEX?

Not asking for specific questions....not that anyone can really remember them anyway, :lol2: but what did you have the most of? Prioritizing, Pharm, OB, calculations etc???

Also, how many questions did you have with a pass or fail?

Thanks in advance...

Everyone's NCLEX is different; however everyone's NCLEX questions are based on the Detailed NCLEX Test Plan. The stress of the exam, etc. makes it very difficult for the test taker to know with 100% certainty the specific NCLEX Test Plan category any question fits into. You have to expect that you will get tested on any "testable" content. All NCLEX candidates should review the current Detailed NCLEX Test Plan. You can access the current plan at https://www.ncsbn.org/454.htm Click on the specific NCLEX plan you are studying for (RN or PN).

Best of luck on NCLEX.

My Nclex I had a whole load of prioritizing questions, and delegating of task questions. I also had multiple drug calculation questions. I only had 90 questions total.

I took NCLEX-RN 10 days ago and passed with 75 questions.

Most... maybe a half of questions I asked were Prioritization:balloons:

Since the general idea of the NCLEX is to see if you are competent in all of the areas of nursing, any weaknesses you have will likely result in greater numbers of questions in that area. In other words, if you are weak in OB, you are more likely to incorrectly answer more OB questions and/or correctly answer ones below the passing standard. Therefore, the computer will keep giving you OB questions EITHER until it's "sure" you've met the passing criterion for that section, OR you have no hope of doing so (at which point your test ends).

If you are competent pretty evenly, you shouldn't see any concentration in any one area of nursing. "Prioritizing" questions cover all areas as well; they aren't an area of nursing but rather a type of question designed to see if you know how to apply nursing knowledge. And yes, seeing many of those types of questions tend to indicate you're doing well enough that you've moved beyond basic knowledge questions and into higher quality questions (that is, meeting or exceeding the passing standard).

I've heard about that too... I wonder how true is that... The test is supposed to test your knowledge in all areas, and all questions level should depend on previous question difficulty, not a specific area...

if you're weak on O.B, the computer will likely give you more O.B questions.If that the case, it is not random.But i guess, the more you will answer correctly, the harder it is.

I had lots of priority questions, delegation, lots of meds, no math at all...( I was shocked!) and even some questions regarding use of machines and trauma. Very tricky test....Thank God is over!!!

so many priority, '' if they nurse had has two patients... she should'', you know those types of questions. good luck!

It is true, according to the NCLEX's own information. Each question does increase or decrease in difficulty, but it's not as if you get all of one area of nursing at one time: it's random choice (mixed up), but testers will still see a greater number of questions in their area of weakness.

The test will not let you pass if you are below standard in a required component.

Aloha! Just want to get onboard. I was sure I had found information about the NCLEX-PN here last semester, but I closer it get the more unsre I am abouit anythin. Oh my!

lots of priority, meds, teaching, disaster, no calc or alternate questions 81-85

If you are good in an area, you will probably be getting those questions correct right away. There is no way that an exam can test you on the areas that you have covered in school. That is not why this exam was designed in the first place. It knows what you were required to cover in school, it wants to know what you will do with the information that you learned.

If the computer feels confident that you know the correct way of doing something, it will move onto the next area. And it will focus on your weak areas, expect to see more questions on those areas, those are the ones where you usually miss questions.

How did you end up doing? I had between 95-105 and lots of prioritizing, teaching, meds, no math calulations and I am FREAKING out...Did you feel like you knew a lot? The test made me feel dumb because I felt like I had the knowledge but it was hard for me to single out an answer from 2 choices! Well Just curious. I hope you did great!

I had a lot of infection control questions.....i passed with 75 questions! a couple of drugs and 1 OB question...that's it!

I took my NCLEX yesterday. I really don't think I could have prepared for it. I had alot of questions I had no idea about. Mostly mine was Pharm and priority type questions. I didn't have any math and only one select all that apply.

My test stopped at 75 questions and like everyone elese I do not feel real good about it. I will no tommorrow evening though as I live in a quick result state.

Crosses her fingers and waits.:o

Thanks everyone for your replies. Looks as though I need to brush up on prioritization. Good luck to everyone waiting on their results and who are about to take the NCLEX!!!!!!!!!!

priority type questions,delegation,select all that apply,no math or drug calculations,infection control,meds side effects,psyche and cardiac meds,pre procedure for a certain diagnostic test...thats all i got..my computer shut off at 85 or so i cannot remember...
