All US state and territorial Boards of Nursing require a passing result on the NCLEX-PN exam for licensure as a licensed practical nurse (LPN) or licensed vocational nurse (LVN). The NCLEX-PN is administered by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing, Inc. (NCSBN). The exam\'s content is based on client needs:

  • Safe Effective Care Environment
    • Coordinated Care
    • Safety and Infection Control
  • Health Promotion and Maintenance
  • Psychosocial Integrity
  • Physiological Integrity
    • Basic Care and Comfort
    • Pharmacological Therapies
    • Reduction of Risk Potential
    • Physiological Adaptation

Most of the questions of the NCLEX exam are multiple-choice questions. In recent years, however, the Boards of Nursing have added new format questions which do not involve simple multiple-choice selection. Examples of the new formats include identifying and selecting a particular area of a drawn body part; selecting multiple correct answers (via checkboxes); free-response mathematical questions (usually medication calculations); and arranging the steps of a medical or nursing procedure in order.

This is our second set of NCLEX questions, with 50 more free NCLEX-PN practice test questions.
