Download NCK past papers from the year 2003 to 2020 for diploma nurses pdf format.
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 questions, answering them and giving you the most wanted correct answers and their rationales.
To get a glimpse of the structure of these questions let's have a rough overview of the exam.
Initially, candidates sat for four exam papers that is; paper one to paper four over two examination days. With the outbreak of the covid pandemic, the nursing council of Kenya shifted the structure of the questions and also the method of doing these questions. Currently, the exam is done in only two papers consisting of 100 multiple choice questions each. An online proctoring platform (Digi proctor is used).
