I just got my NET scores back and I think I did pretty well. For the Essential Math Skills I got an 86% and the Reading Comprehension is 97%.
My concern lies in the "other" stuff. Testtaking skills was 36%. I was ranked
as having Instructional Testtaking skills. What does that mean? Will it have
any bearing on my acceptance into Nursing School
? Should I be worried or is
anxiety over the wait for an acceptance letter getting to me?

The only parts that have bearing on your acceptance is the Math and Reading Comprehension sections. The other sections are informational and to help the school make sure they're putting you in a group that would best fit your needs. For the reading level, there are three: Frustration, Instructional and Independent. Instructional means that with the benefit of lectures, you can be expected to successfully read college level material.
Congratulations on getting such a great score! Do you realize that the average NET result is around 60-65%? What was your composite percentile (it will probably be on the bottom right hand part of the results page)?
PS - my testtaking skills result was 60%, which they considered "independent" so don't get scared by the 36% - it's not as low as it sounds.
