NCSBN has a dedicated covid-19 site with lots of information about licensure, nursing education and other resources.
- Joint Statement between NLN and NCSBN on nursing programs, accreditors, boards of nursing and practice being flexible during these times.
- Policy Brief on a model for education/practice partnerships during these unprecedented times.
- Board of nursing changes in nursing education requirements because of covid-19. This will be updated daily because it is a moving target.
The NCSBN will make modifications to both the NCLEX-RN® and NCLEX-PN® parameters as of October 1, 2020:
- The exam has a shortened time limit of five hours.
- The minimum number of true test items is 60.
- The maximum number of true test items is 130.
- 15 pretest items will be reintroduced so minimum length exam is 75 items and max is 145 items with these questions included.
- The difficulty level and passing standard is unchanged.
- The current Run Out of Time (root) scoring rule is no longer applicable. The final ability estimate is computed from the response to all completed items. Those scoring above the passing standard will have a passing exam, otherwise the exam will be scored as a fail.
- For NCLEX-RN®, the voluntary NGN Special Research Section will be reintroduced.
Lippincott® PassPoint can mimic these test parameters to help students practice for this modified exam.
