NCLEX-PN Exam Practice

Select how would you like to study

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 check boxes); free response mathematical questions (usually medication calculations); and arranging the steps of a medical or nursing procedure in order.
