    Take a deep breath and relax! *LOL*

    Everything you need to know is on HB's website:

    "• You may take the NLN RN Pre-Admission PAX exam at the Hunter College Testing Service, or arrange to take it elsewhere. The deadline to take the exam is Friday, March 1, 2013. Scores for the NLN RN Pre-Admission PAX exam, if taken outside of Hunter College, must be sent directly to Maria Luisa Mendoza, Pre-Nursing Advisor, Hunter-Bellevue School of Nursing, 425 E 25th Street, Box 626, New York, NY 10010 from the NLN. Only official test scores will be accepted."

    In short the answer to your query is that long as you take the NLN-PAX on or before 1 March 2013, that is all you need worry about far as that goes. If for some reason during the application process HB says they don't have your scores and or they didn't arrive on time you'll have something from NLN as proof which should clear things up.

    Just make sure to clearly and correctly indicate which school or schools you want your NLN-Pax scores sent.

    Actually, this past NCLEX passing rate was around 97%. There would almost be 500+ students trying to apply to the program each year. The pre-req class content is still the same but they might add pathophysiology or pharmacology prior to the program.

    Would anyone know, what would be considered a competitive NLN score?

    It always depends on how people do as a whole... but most people scored 140s-150s.

    The NLN is pretty straightforward--make flashcards, do the practice tests and you'll be fine. I found some online flashcards that I used that were helpful. I got a 150 on it last time I took it (in spring 2011) and the adviser at Hunter told me that wasn't up to snuff - it was the bottom of their cut off.

    I did all my prereqs at Hunter and I'm really struggling with deciding if I should even BOTHER applying (applied for Fall 2012 accelerated and didn't make the cut). Hearing they cut another 50 seats is not terribly great news either--what is the deal with this new BSN track? Do you think it'll be at all easier to get into vs. the regular and accelerated programs?

    Hey ebinbrooklyn..
    How did you get a 150? You simply studied the red book? I mentioned in a previous post that the red book is too basic. I don't think studying the red book can earn one a 150..Let me know how you did so well..
