NLN on sat. Wish me luck....I need it

  1. Well after 2 torturous months of waiting to take the NLN PAX-RN exam, its here. This Saturday 2/3 I'll be sitting at my hopefully future nursing school taking this confounded test. The worst is the anticipation of taking the test and not knowing what you will get.

    Surprisingly enough I am not freaking out, I'm not nervous, I'm not anything, more resigned to the notion that I have this test on Saturday and if I don't pass it with an exceptional grade I'm not getting into my program. Plain and simple.

    Wish me luck!

    Hi!

    I am taking the test on Saturday too! Where are you taking it? I am taking it at Beth Israel School of Nursing.

    I am freaking out a little about the math (not my best subject).

    Good luck

    Ok - I took the test. Verbal was fine and math was not as bad as I thought. The science was the worst. About 75% was from chemistry and physics and I haven't taken Chem in about 18 years and I have never taken physics.

    The school looks really nice - I hope that I get in!

    Vocab and Math were what I expected it to be, I feel pretty good about it (which makes me nervous that i feel good about it, cause now i'm paranoid that i'll get my score back and it'll be a disaster) science, was tough though i didn't really put a lot of time into it, i took chem 2 or 3 yrs ago (which i hated and nothing stuck!) and never took physics either, i did try to read up on some stuff though. Oh well,we just have to wait and see. I went to the first open house back in October and totally fell in love with the school, its the only one I applied too, so fingers, toes and eyes are crossed that I get in too.

    I am sure you both did fine!

    I am so happy for you that it is over!! It must be such a relief. I bet you did great. Seems most do better than they think. I take mine 2/24 so keep your fingers crossed for me. Cross your toes too because I need all the help I can get. lol

    Do we need to memorize the Periodic Table?! I haven't as of yet. Thanks.

    Definately a relief, but now waiting for the scores are sooo much worse. Im going to be a worrying mess until i get them.

    hum i think you might have to know isotope stuff if i remember correctly, know ohms and Neutons law. I can't remember much of the science stuff to be honest.

    Make sure to keep time, take a watch, keep your eyes on the time. If you hit something you don't know move on, don't dwell on it, do everything you know first, especially with the math.
