NLN Exam

  1. 0 Hope somebody can help me. This is my 2nd semester at DTCC. I have a long way to go to become a RN. I don't have many classes done, but want to study & take NLN to get on the list. Is it really hard? Do you think it is possible to pass without many classes under my belt? Thanks everyone.

    Definitely possible to pass. I had a study guide for the exam and hardly used it and passed pretty easily. Focus on English, Math and Science basically. Pick up a study guide at the bookstore and set a date to take the test! Get it over with

    I guessed on so many questions and still passed with a high score so keep an open mind! Which DTCC do you attend? I went to Owens.

    i just took the nln and the math was pretty easy. the english is easy for the reading part, but nearly impossible for the vocab! study the roots! and science was off and on for me, either you know it or you dont!

    I just took the NLN exam and passed.......no need to be scared.
    The book for the NLN that I used is Review for RN Pre-Entrance Exam, 2nd edition, edited by Mary E. McDonald.......you may purchase the book from Barnes & Nobles or you could visit www.jbpub.com.
    Make sure you get familiar with the vocabulary, there is a lot of reading, time is of the essence, therefore you must work efficiently......good luck.

    I took the NLN after my first quarter in school (after 30 years!!) The classes I had completed were the first A&P, College Algebra, and Psychology.

    I think those of us that had to do math before calculators had an advantage. The math section was heavy in decimals, fractions and percentages. It also had several factoring, solve for x, and exponent questions.

    Reading and vocabulary was not as difficult as the study guide to me. Taking the pretests helps. Read carefully, some answers are obvious, but some require thought.

    I thought I had really blown the science due to the high number of physics questions, but I did well enough to score in the 98th percentile.

    Overall, my composite was 157 and my percentile was 99, so an old lady can do it. Just read and reread the science portion of the study guide and take the pre-tests. Time yourself to set the pace for the real thing. Good luck.
