Hello Everyone From Wisconsin!!

  1. Hi. Well, I have alot of questions!!!! But, first introductions! I am from Wisconsin, I am trying very hard to get into the "core" program of Nursing. I am currently taking my generals at a Tech School.

    The one thing that is stopping me from getting into the "core" is the NLN-PAX exam..... can anyone please tell me how I can pass this exam? I am 32 years old, so I have been out of HS for quite a few years, so if there are things that I can get besides the NLN practice book, please let me know.

    I would like to know what the test is like, what specifically is on there I guess, so I can kind of study those main points. Like one gal said, I found a post way back in 2001 also, so something updated would be wonderful to hear!!!

    Thanks for all inquiries!!

    Good luck. Welcome! I'm going to move your question to the student forum where you might get more answers. Sorry I can't help you as I never had to take that exam.

    I am from Wisconsin as well, but didn't have to take that exam, so I can't help you out there. What school are you applying to?

    I just took the NLN and was accepted into the nursing program. All I can tell you is that a lot of it is common sense stuff. I think if you have done your pre req's recently and you have got your mind working again you will do fine. I am a 38 year old woman who recently returned to college. If i can do so can you. Don't stress too much that clouds your mind. RELAX :spin:
