I am applying to an RN program for this fall. I have taken the required A&P courses but that was over 7 years ago, so I am required to pass the NLN Anatomy & Physiology assessment test -- or I will have to spend two more semesters repeating those courses. There is apparently no study guide available and the test specifications are really vague (i.e. I should know "major body systems" - I figured as much).
I am wondering if anyone has taken the test or is familiar with it. Is there anything that it obviously does NOT cover? Are there diagrams for skeleton/muscles or do you have to identify from a verbal description? And so on. Right now I am facing the unpleasant prospect of having to memorize a 1000+ page A&P book in 2 months - in addition to the 13 credits I'm currently taking. I would greatly appreciate any advice that anyone can give. Thanks!

the nln put out a book called "rn pre entrance exam" (you can probably get a good deal at amazon
.com ) i used it, it was an ok resource - although i found i had to use other biology books to brush up
good luck with your exam

I was also hoping someone would have some suggestions on what to study for this. I wish they had some sort of study guide. Any help would be great!

To the first poster I can say there are no pictures or diagrams on the test.
