    Is there any other topics that you can remember that was on the NLN? I'm taking it next week and I've just been studying from the A&P book and all of my old powerpoints and notes. Are there any diagrams on this exam?

    I competed A and P II over a year ago....I studied every night about 4 hours off my AP II powerpoints...that helped me quite a lot...good luck on your test

    if you don't have a near perfect gpa or previous degrees it is almost impossible to get in. i took all my prereqs there, 30+ hours of comm. service, and scored in the 93% on the original nln and didn't get in. i tried again, took the new a+p exam got an 87% (keep in mind i haven't taken a+p in over a year), got my gpa up (all a's past 2 semesters) and still won't get in. they throw away comm. service hours after a year so i think i may have just hit a year. if i had just 4 more credits or .04 more gpa points i would get 2 more and 1 more points respectively. i would not go to goodwin unless you're a perfect student or have a previous degree. i may have slipped in if i scored at least 90 or 96 points on the a+p test. there are no chances to take the test again for the fall semester because today is the last day and it is full. i wasted all this time and money to walk away with a non-nursing associate's degree. my a+p ii teacher was so sure i'd get in last year. when i tell my professors i haven't been able to get in, they are shocked because they know i have the ability. i'm not trying to bash, just a warning- don't put all your eggs into one basket. apply to the community colleges also. be ready for the disappointment and for the possibility that you will do everything they ask and still may not get in. it is not all their fault, i have to hold some responsibility for not getting a 4.0, but it is hard to be perfect especially if you're working 40 hours a week. marlene in the nursing dept. said that this semester she has had double the applicants than prior semesters. there are so many applicants and only 62 spots. there were more people taking the test during the time period i took it than there are spots.

    Cristina,That amazes and scares me that you say that. What are you at for points? It has to be borderline getting in since you're scoring so well on the nln.

    Hi sephilli88, I have to put my foot in my mouth! I just found out I was accepted yesterday. I wasn't expecting it so when I saw the package from Goodwin I had no idea what it was. I am so happy to finally have made it in. See you in the fall! I will be taking my class in the evening.

    Hello all,
    I'm having a hard time finding up-to-date information on how many points people have been getting into the program with. I am awaiting to hear back from Goodwin and the anticipation is killing me.

    In 2010, I entered the program with 19-20 points which was average then.

    It no longer is an NLN A&P. The summer 2017 applicants have to do the TEAS version 6 now. They made the change this year after the Fall and Spring Applicants took their tests.
