Preparation and revision for the Nursing Council Of Kenya licensure examinations can be a daunting task if not done effectively. Effective and productive revision requires good and concise revision materials to give you all the accurate and reliable content and past examination papers to give you a glimpse and idea of the most commonly set and tested areas.

Accessing all the past papers is one task and answering all of the questions with correct answers together with their rationales is another task. Both of these can seem unachievable in a short time but Medcrine has eased the way to do it. We have taken a chance to collect all the past papers and their questions, answered them correctly, and included their rationales.
