Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the NCLEX-RN?

    The NCLEX-RN is a standardized test that each state's board of nursing uses to determine if it's safe for a person to begin practicing as an entry-level nurse. The NCLEX-RN is used for graduates of registered nursing (RN) programs.

  • How many questions are on the NCLEX-RN?

    It depends. The NCLEX-RN will serve up between 75 and 265 questions and will stop as soon as your competency level has been identified. You can pass or fail at any number of questions.

  • How do you pass the NCLEX-RN?

    To pass the NCLEX-RN, you have to demonstrate that your level of competency is above the minimum standard. As you answer questions correctly, you'll be given increasingly difficult questions, and you will need to work your way up in difficulty so the NCLEX-RN algorithm can identify your passing-level competency with 95% confidence. Answering questions correctly will require both nursing content knowledge and critical thinking skills; at Kaplan, we recommend you study with a mix of content, strategy, and practice.

  • How long does it take to get NCLEX-RN results?

    Official results will be sent to you approximately 6 weeks after taking the NCLEX-RN. Some states offer a quick results service which allows you to access your "unofficial" results within 2 business days.

  • How many times can you take the NCLEX-RN?

    Ideally you'll only take the NCLEX-RN one time. However, if necessary you are allowed to retest 45 days after the administration of your previous exam. Candidates are permitted to take the exam 8 times a year, but not more than once within a 45 day period.
