another new lpn

  1. I haven't even obtained my first nursing position yet... I am so green. I have been told there are entry tests for any job that I apply for... Can anyone tell me what the entry exams consist of? math? More nclex type questions? I appreciate any responses to my question

    I'm a newer LVN who completed school 1 year ago. I have never had to take any entrance exams as a condition of gaining employment.

    ALex's Mom,

    Most jobs I have applied for have required a math competency, to show you can do medicine calculations. Depending on the kind of job you are applying for, they may require exams of specialty, or certain certifications such as ACLS, an OR exam,ER exam, triage exam, pediatrics, just to show basic knowledge. No you won't be doing nclex type questions WHew!!!!:wink2:

    They are also not necessarily entrance tests they are usually part of orientation at most hospitals, unless you are doing dialysis etc....

    Hope this helps,
    SAtin
