The NCLEX-PN exam is a computer-adaptive test with between 85 and 205 questions. Most items are 4-option multiple-choice, but some require test takers to click on part of an image, “select all (options) that apply,” drag and drop answer choices into the correct order, or type an answer into a box (free response). Test takers have a maximum of five hours to complete the exam.
