    Congrats ARB86! Thats awesome!!!

    Im from CA & will be moving to Tampa in 2 months to go to Galen (LP then LP to RN bridge). I will be taking the PAX-PN test in 2 weeks and just got my study guide for PAX-PN (about 400 pages). Do you recommend that I study the entire book? Im sooo nervous about this test. Its been about 10 years since I was in school and Im not a good test taker. Any advice? Thank you!

    Do you have the NLN Pax-Pn book recommended by Galen? If so, this is the same book I used to prepare and it had very valuable test prep topics and questions. There is really no way to "study" this book...just to give you a VERY CLOSE example of what the test will be like.

    The thing that will get you the most is the time! Only an hour per section...and it flys by! If I had to do again I would have paid attention to my watch and made better time...not having to scurry to finish. Review your basic science n physics...i gave examples in my earlier post. But honestly....if you review the book and know how to get through the math then your golden!! I guessed so many so I didnt eat all my time up..so maybe practice timing urself??? Its only as tough as u make it......and its been 7 yrs since school for me...its not bad.promise!

    Hello! They go by your COMPOSITE score ! 92 lpn and 96 rn to pass and be considered for acceptance. Good luck!
