US Simplifies COVID-19 Nursing License Exam: How To Get This Demand

“This is to ensure that social distancing measures are effective and to increase the number of candidates who can be tested on a daily basis,” the NCSBN website says. They clarified that no more than 10 people will now be present in the audience during the exam.
In connection with the innovations, the exams NCLEX-RN (licensed nurse) and NCLEX-PN (nurse practitioner) from March 25, 2020 to July 2020 will look as follows:
- the minimum number of test items is 60 (before that there were 75 for RN and 85 for PN);
- the maximum number of test tasks - 130 (was 265 for RN and 205 for PN);
- the maximum testing time will be 4 hours (before that, the exam was allocated 6 hours for the RN and 5 for the PN);
- Section Next Generation NCLEX Special Research Section temporarily removed from the test (previously it took about 30 minutes of test time);
- level of complexity and assessment standards have not changed;
- the use of computerized adaptive testing (CAT) continues.
