Taking the NCLEX-RN® Test on a Computer
■ First: You will receive general information about the exam and the testing
center. Your time spent on this will not count.
■ Second: You will take a tutorial on how to use the computer to answer the
questions on NCLEX-RN®. Your answers will not count toward your score,
but the time you take will be subtracted from the total 6 hours you have
for the exam.
■ Third: You will then be presented with real NCLEX-RN® items; there will
be between 75 and 265 items. The test ends when it is 95% certain your
ability is ↑ or ↓ the passing standard.
