The NCLEX-PN exam is a computerized adaptive test, which means the computer selects questions based on your ability and competence as demonstrated on your answer to the previous question. This process continues until cleared with 95% certainty that your ability is above or below the passing standard.

Most of the questions you will find on the NCLEX-PN are written at the application and analysis level of cognitive ability. Test questions integrate the nursing process and the four client needs.

NCLEX-PN questions will be presented in a variety of formats such as multiple choice, multiple response, fill-in-the-blank, calculation, drag and drop, and/or hot spot. All questions may include multimedia such as charts, tables, graphics, sound and video.
