The NCLEX® Exam. The National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX ® exam) has one purpose: To determine if it is safe for you to begin practice as an entry-level nurse. It is significantly different from any test that you took in nursing school.
These exams include the NCLEX-RN AND NCLEX-PN examinations.
NCLEX-RN and NCLEX-PN Examinations developed and administered by NCSBN are constantly and rigorously evaluated to keep pace with the rapidly evolving health care environment.
