NCE and SEE Exam Tutorial

Welcome to the NBCRNA Exam Tutorial for the National Certification Examination (NCE) and Self-Evaluation Examination (SEE). The purpose of this tutorial is to provide examinees with interactive examples of the five question formats contained within the NCE and SEE. This tutorial contains a total of 20 sample items that depict generally how the questions will look in the exam administration software, as well as basic instructions for responding to each question type. It can be taken an unlimited number of times.

The intent of these examples is to give the examinee an idea of how the questions will appear and how the examinee interacts with them on the NCE and SEE only. However, the exam tutorial is not intended to be predictive of future performance on the NCE or SEE Examinations. Success on the exam tutorial, or lack thereof, in no way guarantees success on the examination(s). Please note that these are samples only and may not be the exact representation of how alternative question formats will appear on the NCE or SEE. A comprehensive sampling from the content outline is not represented.

You can view additional alternative item type sample questions here.
