Nursing Board Exam Questions


At Nurseslabs, we have a large database of nursing exam questions which you can use for the Philippine Nurse Licensure Exam (PNLE), Prometric, HAAD and DHA Exams, Singapore Nursing Board Exam, and of course, the NCLEX exam. These exams will sharpen your problem solving and critical thinking skills that will be very beneficial when you take the actual exams.

Guidelines For Each Exams

  • Read each question carefully and choose the best answer.
  • You are given one minute per question. Spend your time wisely!
  • Be sure to read the answers and rationale.
  • If you need clarifications or found any typos, direct them to the comments section for each exam.

Explanation about the 3 modes

For each quiz, you’ll see the three (3) mode TextPractice and Exam. 

  • In Text Mode: All questions and answers are given on a single page for reading and answering at your own pace. Be sure to grab your pen and paper to write down your answers! You can also copy the exam and make a print out or a PDF.
  • In Practice Mode: This is an interactive version of the Text Mode. All questions are given in a single page and correct answers, rationales or explanations (if any) are immediately shown after you have selected an answer. No time limit for this exam.
  • Exam Mode is similar with Practice Mode but the questions are shown in random. Answers and rationales (if any) will only be given after you have finished the quiz. You are also timed on this mode, a total of 1 minute per question.

  9. Hello mam,
    Ask lang po kung kinakailangan ko pa po ba mg review center?kc yong gen.rating ko ngayon 72.80 self review lang…anu po ba dpat ko gawin?or magfinal coaching nlang po ako?:(

  10. hello po. thanks for sharing this kind of questions, answers and rationale. i know it will help me a lot this coming november NLE. thank you so much. God bless and more power.:) _danica

  11. Hi po,,magre-retake po ako for nov.,pro this time self review nalang ako,,kz wala din naman lumabas sa review namin. ang plano ko po ibili nalang ng mga books nong bagong BON ung perang pang enroll ko sna sa review? and barrow notes from friends who will be reviewing also, and attend final coaching nalang? sa tingin nio po?

    • Hello Marj,

      I suggest you wait for PRC’s online verification of ratings to see which of the 5 nursing practices exams you’ve scored the lowest. Focus on that particular exam during your review. As for the self-review, it’s your discretion whichever is suited to your learning style. Some people excel on self-review while others excel when obtaining input from other people. Also, as for me, the final coaching is a must attend since this is when reviewers tackle new questions that may show during the NLE. I wish you good luck! Hope you pass this November NLE! :)

  12. Im also taking my board exam this coming nov. And while waiting for my review I often read and answers your questions here and it’s very helpful and useful…thanks a lot…:)
