NCSBN Launches NCLEX Practice Exam
CHICAGO – NCSBN has launched the NCLEX Practice Exam (NPE) that provides candidates in the U.S. and Canada preparing to take NCLEX Examinations with an experience that is similar to the look and the feel of the actual test. The NPE is a simulation of the NCLEX using actual, retired NCLEX items.
The NCLEX-RN and NCLEX-PN Examinations are nationwide examinations designed to measure entry-level nursing competence utilized in both the U.S and Canada as part of the licensing process. Recognized globally as preeminent nursing examinations, the exams are constantly and rigorously evaluated to keep pace with the rapidly evolving health care environment.
“NPE is designed to reduce candidate anxiety about taking the NCLEX Exam. It offers the most unique experience in that it is a computerized adaptive test just like the actual exam,” comments Philip D. Dickison, PhD, RN, NCSBN chief officer, Operations and Examinations.
While not a review course or predictor of success, the NPE offers candidates: two separate exams with 125 questions on each; six continuous hours to take each RN practice exam; five continuous hours to take each PN practice exam; a tutorial to demonstrate the different question types; and a score report with the percentage of questions answered correctly. The cost of the NPE is $150 USD.
