On a scale of 1-10 how difficult is the NCLEX-RN test??

I would love to become a neonatal nurse, so getting more info and background would help a lot! #college #nursing #certifications #nclex-rn #nurse #hospital-and-health-care #healthcare


Taking the NCLEX-RN test is not very easy but when you go through a nursing program to become a nurse, the nursing school and the professors will prepare the students for the NCLEX test. It's always an advantage to be in study groups and also get review books in taking the NCLEX. Pearson Education is the publishing company that actually sell these review books. The test itself will ask many general questions about medical/surgical, psychology, etc. The questions are multiple facets that combine all the specialties. It is not just questions about neonatal nursing. I hope this helps. Angela Redito Ichinose

The NCLEX is made to be a difficult exam, the purpose of the NCLEX is to determine if you meet the minimum requirements to practice safely as a nurse. It will test a very large amount of material, some people get lots of questions on pediatrics, some only get a few, while others get lots of questions on a particular body system. It is very variable and depends partially on how well you do, if you get several questions on a topic correct the test will move on, if you keep missing them it will give you more. Though it is a difficult exam, it is created to help you pass. You can have the full amount of questions and pass, you just have to reach a certain percentage of correct answers. I passed with the minimum amount of questions, I would recommend the best way to study is do a little bit of content review and then lots and lots and lots of practice questions/tests. You do not need to take an NCLEX prep course to pass, you just need to dedicate the time to study for it. There are lots of prep books out there to help you. I would also recommend taking it no later than a month after you graduate, the sooner you get it over with the sooner you don’t have to worry about it anymore. The longer you wait, the longer you aren’t actively using the material giving you more room to forget what you know.

You will learn so much information, it will be impossible to test you accurately on it all.
You are being tested on how SAFE you will be.
What is the BEST answer based on what you have learned. Some questions are straightforward, math, etc., but most you need to rely on your evaluation skills.
I took a NCLEX review course and it helped immensely.
Take the exam as soon as possible after graduation.
I won't try to assign a number, it's different for all. Some people are chill, some I knew cried through it!

The trick to it is to practice practice practice. After doing many questions you will begin to see the logic in finding the best selection answer. That's how I passed it (first time -- with minimum questions). Don't bother looking over your classnotes -- just take as many practice tests as you can stand.

You will be fine if you take a lot of practice tests. I did Kaplan and passed first time. Spend all or most of your time on test questions.
