How questions are selected for the NCLEX exam


If you’re considering a nursing profession, you already know that it requires a license issued by the state that you work in. The NCLEX-PN and NCLEX-RN exam is a tough test not to be taken lightly because it is what determines if you will be working as a “licensed” practical nurse or registered nurse. In the December 2011 edition of The Oregon Board of Nursing Sentinel [December 2011] accessible online for free (the official publication by the Oregon State Board of Nursing) includes an article on the process of updating and creating questions for the NCLEX exam. It doesn’t involve flipping through a text book. A lot of effort and thought is put into creating the test, which is why you should put even more effort into studying and passing the test so you can be a highly respected and important member of the health care profession.
