Has anyone taken the LVN Gap test?

  1. I have to take this test for LVN to RN school and I just dont know what I am in for. I know it contains surgical nursing , peds, MS and maybe OB but Im looking for the difficulty of the test. Am I looking at common sense stuff here or do I need to do a in-depth review. I will review but I just kinda needed a base line on this test....Thanks in advance

    I took it at a college in southern California. We were told it is a "critical thinking nursing" test, it was the gap. I don't have much to say about it but in my opinion it had little to do with critical thinking. It was strictly & I mean strictly nursing knowledge. A few questions about eating disorders, chest tubes, psych meds, ect. Straight forward, you know it or you don't. It was nothing like the boards which I feel was traditional critical thinking. Best wishes,
