UWorld Nursing Announces New Changes to Align with the NCLEX® Exam

UWorld Nursing - NCLEX Exam

With the announcement of modifications to the NCLEX-RN® and NCLEX-PN® examinations from NCSBN, UWorld is adapting our Self-Assessment tests to align with these changes.

What to Know About the NCLEX-RN and NCLEX-PN Changes:

  • The reintroduction of pretest items to the NCLEX exams changed the minimum number of items on the exams to 75 items and the maximum number to 145 items. 
  • The maximum amount of time allowed to complete the exams is five hours.
  • The Next Generation NCLEX Special Research Section will be added to the NCLEX-PN exam and reintroduced to the NCLEX-RN exam. (This section of the exam is voluntary.)
  • A general guide and test taking tips will replace the NCLEX Tutorial.

How UWorld Is Adapting Self-Assessments to Mimic the Exam:

  • Beginning November 16, 2020, students will now have approximately 207 minutes to complete each Self-Assessment test in the NCLEX-RN and NCLEX-PN QBank. 
  • The maximum number of questions permitted when creating a practice test in the NCLEX-PN QBank is now 75.

All questions in our QBanks are written by experienced nursing professionals at the application level or higher. This ensures you are sufficiently prepared on exam day.
