I remember the changes for the NCLEX exam, one of which was a move away from a multiple choice format. There were many different reasons for this change such as to make it easier for students to learn to take the test. You would be hard pressed to find any doctor of nursing home that still uses the multiple choice NCLEX exam, which makes it hard for them to be able to rate the students on their knowledge of the subject matter covered.
That wasn’t the only change however, a few other changes occurred but were small. In fact I didn’t even think about the changes at first, but it took me a while to get over the anger and frustration I felt over the changes being made to the exam.
The second change made was to the NCLEX exam and that change was to give every student a four hour block to study for the exam. I think a four-hour block is way too short and if they wanted to do any kind of real preparation then they should have been able to add another hour to the schedule.
There were other changes to the exam for the new edition as well but the four-hour block was probably the biggest. During that four-hour block they wanted to test certain areas that had not been tested in a long time so they added questions relating to heart disease and hypertension.
It was obvious to me that something was going on behind the scenes with the NCLEX exam but I didn’t realize exactly what it was until I started preparing for my own exam. When I learned what was happening, I vowed to not let anything like that happen to me. What happened in 1997 caused students around the world to drop out of nursing schools and I didn’t want that to happen to me.
I had just taken my NCLEX and I thought I was prepared for the test. I didn’t know that some of the more complex questions had already been written by the exam makers without any kind of input from the actual nurse who was administering the exam. It turned out that all of the nursing schools didn’t do this and it was all by accident.
These exam changes were a disaster and I am glad that I was in school when they were implemented. Now I do take my NCLEX exam because I don’t have to worry about exam preparation any longer. The information I got from the news isn’t very helpful so I will always go with what I know.
If you want to know what the NCLEX exam will be like in 2020, you need to learn about the NCLEX exam changes that are coming in 2020. You can take the NCLEX exam again if you take your exam a year early or a year late. However, I would only take the exam a year early.
In order to take the NCLEX exam a year early, you would have to take the exam during a three month period before the first exam date was due. You would also have to take the exam during a time when there was no exam period.
If you take the NCLEX exam a year late it will actually cost you more money than if you take the exam during the off season. If you want to take the exam during the off season, you would have to wait until the next available exam window and that will cost you about a thousand dollars less than the exam you would have taken a year ago.
If you take the NCLEX exam a year early you will end up saving hundreds of dollars. If you do the math the difference could mean thousands of dollars in savings.
