  1. very educational i like it because i want to continue my education in the nursing field

  2. This is a great resource for anyone who’s curious about the NCLEX! At our website, we receive lots of questions about how hard the exam is, what’s on it, etc. This is a great resource to direct people to.

  30. Wileenf

    I would like to say that after studying Kaplan and taking these quizzes I feel more competent about takin my boards this coming october 2010. I have scored competent in both part one and in the medication part. Thanks so much I wish I had this to refer to the first time I took boards.

  31. Diane Kirse, RN, BSN

    Some of these questions mean nothing to the actual process and knowledge needed for nursing. Second, in the question regarding the infant that may be developing CHF the question is misleading. Most infants gain weight. So the question does not make sense the way it is written. The question does not specify a time frame.

  32. OMG, I had heard that NCLEX was a piece of cake and now I know why. Grad ’76. Sat Boards for 2 days in a hotel in Louisville. Couln’t go to the john without a proctor. People cried! Read the entire “Lippincott Instant Cup of Nurse” like it was a novel, over the summer. The whole state sat boards in Sept. No choice. Took 8 exams in 2days. 1st job paid $6.43/hr. I now make $90.00/hr. Amazing!

  33. Debbie

    It’s nice to know your competent as a nurse…that matters a lot to me.

  34. Lisa

    I’m thinking there were a few misspelled words in here, but fun to do.

  35. serene

    17/25, competent. good to know. still taking pre-req”s

  36. Mary

    This isn’t accurate to the real NCLEX. I took boards last year and the questions were more case sceniros. Like you have a patient with such and such problem and they have vitals of such and such what would you do to treat them. Things like that.

  37. Melodye

    Enjoyed the challange. Have been in more administrative setting so getting a “competent” on the quiz over long unused information was great

  38. joselynn

    How is this helpful for nclex???? Not one question is nclex style. This more like a test I would take in nursing school!

  39. dan

    Which of these drugs is not an Antihistamine? is a trick question… “clarAtin” is not a drug name, claritin perhaps. Fun quiz anyway, thanks!

  40. Vanessa Rueger

    This was extremely helpful! I love testing my knowledge like this. After taking so many tests I have learned that using critical thinking is the most vital thing to strongest in. I’m hoping to take the RN NCLEX in jan so I’m starting to get soo nervous, I can’t believe I’m almost done with nursing school.
