It is official. There will be unfolding case study questions on the NCLEX (both PN and RN) starting in April of 2023. There will still be regular multiple choice, hot spot, SATA, drag and drop and audio questions on the NCLEX too. The CONTENT and your basic clinical judgment skills are NOT changing. So what you study today, will still be relevant when the NEXT GEN NCLEX rolls out. I’ve already started to prepare the new type of NCLEX questions to practice with students.
All next gen NCLEX questions will have partial credit.
Select all that apply (SATA)
As of today, it is very rare for a SATA to have all the answers be correct. So when in doubt, don’t pick all.
Now, this is super interesting. When the new NCLEX rolls out in 2023, the SATA will change. You will be able to get partial credit on a SATA. This means that if you choose one of the correct answers you will get a point. But if you choose an incorrect answer you will get a point taken away. So if you choose 2 correct answers and 1 incorrect answer, you will get 1 point.
Number of Questions on the NCLEX
On October 1, 2020 and until at least April 2023, the NCLEX will have a minimum of 75 questions and a maximum of 145 questions. 15 of the questions are pilot questions, which don’t count. In the past, those 15 questions have been in the first 75 questions. This the same for both PN and RN exams. Buy nclex license online usa
