What is the CGNFS
CGFNS uses an objective multiple-choice exam. The exam is still administered in a paper & pencil format. This exam is a one-day exam with 2 Nursing parts –one in morning & other in noon, which includes 150 questions in the morning & 110 questions in the afternoon (total 260 questions). You’ll get only one minute for each question. Credit is given for each correct answer & one of the advantages is that there is no penalty for wrong answer, so it is best to guess than leaving blank. Score of 50% is considered as pass that means you have to get 400 for pass.
Both of the Nursing part involves questions from medical, surgical, maternity, pediatric, psychiatric, & community nursing. Your understanding of the phases of Nursing Process & Client needs is tested in the exam.
