You can have anywhere from 75 to 265 questions. You’ll also have a 6-hour maximum time limit for taking the NCLEX but you can finish sooner based on how you are performing. You should receive your unofficial results (either a PASS or a FAIL) in 48 hours. Your official results will be sent to you in about 6 weeks.

If you have any kids who are over 21 years of age, they too do not qualify to automatically get a Green card under you.
