NLN ACE II Exams for LPN-BSN @ OU

  1. 1
    Just took the Adult Med/Surg exam and the Mental Health exam today. Passed Adult. Did not pass Mental Health, however, I was very close. You must receive a 70% to pass at OU, but it varies university to university. I'm very dissapointed I didn't pass mental health because I thought I was doing pretty darn good considering I've never been a psych nurse. But no, I failed. We only have 2 chances to pass. If I don't pass the next time, I can say goodbye to the bridge program. You can still do a traditional BSN, but le'ts admit, I'm applying to the bridge program for a reason. So the pressure is ON. I will be taking mental health/OB/Child in Feburary. Lord help me.
    I spoke with the testing administrator afterward and she informed me that it is very common for nurses to fail mental health/OB/child...."That's encouraging" I thought. lol.
    I think it would serve everyone well if we had some type of resource or thread here that was mainly NLN ACE I and II, so that everyone may pass on their experiences and suggestions. I recommend this because there is basically nothing to glean from except the suggestions from your university. OU told me to study an NCLEX book and had a broad outline of diseases to study. But, I believe it could be narrowed down even further if everyone shares our experiences. I see lots of threads like this one put up, yet nobody answers. So, please, if you have taken the ACE exams (either I or II), please please share your experience!!! Also, please state whether I or II because they are vastly different in difficulty I hear. ACE I is for LPNs wanting an ADN. ACE II is for LPNs/RNs wanting a BSN.

    In the same boat! Not sure what the heck to study… been studying rn nclex and ati books. That exam was so difficult and when I took it the 9 ppl taking it that day ALL failed the child portion, some of them were taking for the second(and last) time. I am hoping and praying they lower the pass grade! Lol seriously tho, I wonder how many people pass those test and are able to enter the program. No matter how much I study I don't feel prepared, because I felt prepared the first time I took it and it kicked me in the butt

    If you go to nlnonlinetesting.org (whatever the website is) there are practice exams available. They are $5 per practice exam and they are 50 questions each. I also purchased an NLN study guide book that helped me. It is published my Mometrix Media. It has a yellow cover with a black band across the front that says "SECRETS" in the band. I will try to find the link and post it.

    It had a lot of information in it, some of it def helped. I would say that the practice tests, any nclex-rn questions and reviewing their rationales helped more

    HI! I am wondering if you ever re-took your tests. I am taking 3 of the 4 (minus Adult) next month and was wondering if it is comparable to NCLEX test. Thank you
