The National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) is a standardized exam that assesses the competencies of nursing professionals in the United States. This exam is necessary for nurses to obtain a license to practice in their respective states. The NCLEX exam is administered by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN).

The NCLEX exam consists of two types of exams: NCLEX-RN and NCLEX-PN. The NCLEX-RN is for Registered Nurses, while the NCLEX-PN is for Practical Nurses. Both exams are computerized adaptive tests and have a minimum of 75 questions and a maximum of 265 questions. The length of the exam varies, as it depends on how long it takes for the computer to determine the candidate's competency level.

The NCLEX exam is designed to test the candidate's knowledge, skills, and abilities in four major areas: Safe and Effective Care Environment, Health Promotion and Maintenance, Psychosocial Integrity, and Physiological Integrity. Candidates are expected to have a thorough understanding of these areas to pass the exam.
