  1. Hello Everyone! I currently live in Sunny South Florida and loving every bit of it! I graduated from FSU with a BS in Communication 2 1/2 years ago and have been working in the medical staffing industry and now proffessional staffing. I originally started as a Nursing major at FSU but discovered that I had a talent of "talking a lot" so I decided to do the communication thing. I recently decided that I have a passion for Nursing and I'm looking forward to the amazing goals I am determined to accomplish. I'm currently awaiting an acceptance in the Spring, but I have to pass the NLN . Has anyone taken the test? Any advice on how to study for it? I take it on September 16. Also because I have a BS I am eligible to be admitted in the RN-MSN program after I receive my RN. I plan on becoming a Nurse Practionar specializing in Cardiac Care. I'm soo excited. Looking forward to everyone's advice and meeting new friends with common career goals.

    Study the book NLN Pre Entrance Exam-RN, or the NLN Pre Entrance Exam-PN. Those are the study guides for the NLN and i studied out of the PN study guide and did pretty good.The questions on the test were very similar to the practice ones that are in the Study guide.

    Hi there...welcome!!

    I am fairly new also. I have two more pre-req's left before my nursing classes and then I'm done!

    I agree with previous posters...buy the Study book...that is really the only way to study. I have taken it and really there isn't a way to prepare for it or know what is really on it until you actually take it, but this study guide is your best bet!!

    Good luck on your test!!
