I took the RN quite a few years ago. I took it really early in my pre-reqs since you can only take it once every 6 months (now it's once a year!). I went into it thinking of it as being a learning experience for when I actually take it. I didnt expect to pass it. My thoughts were "if I do, cool, but at least I will have an idea of what to study for the next time if I don't do well". It was nice going into it without the fear and pressure. Believe me though, I did study my booty off for a couple of months using the NLN study guide. I didn't watch the clock for the 1st part (English) and was running low on seconds left, so I just filled in "C" for the rest of the questions, hoping to pick up a few correct answers! I used my time more wisely for the other 2 sections and finished ahead of time. I was confused on how to read my results, so I had to call the nursing dept and ask them if I was reading it right! Poor lady on the phone got a good scream in her ear!
We had to score in the 50th% or better, and score at least a 100.
Percenticle: (The amount of people that earned raw scores LESS than yours:
My composite score was 124! Boy was I shocked! No need to retest! As a matter of fact, I get 2 points towards entrance for the high score!
Funny thing is, I was in my 1st Biology course, no A&P taken yet, and it was my highest score! I just realized that the study guide questions that had "mitochondria" as a choice, was usually the answer, so if I didn't know the answer, I picked mitochondria.
How do you know your %tile score already?
