    I recently took the NLN. I didn't finish the verbal or the math sections completely. I got to question 40 on both sections. I know this affects the scores. I got a 91 composite score and the percentiles were in the mid 30s. I didn't do as well as I think I would of had I completed the sections in the hour. Do nursing programs consider that a factor when they analyze a student's potential or are decisions based solely on the scores? My undergraduate GPA is not competitive either. However my high school GPA is great. My graduate GPA is good since you have to maintain a B average to stay in the program. I have a great work background in community and urban studies. I am switiching careers so I don't have a science background. I just feel a bit discouraged because for those of us without a science background, we have a lot of shoes to fill when compared to folks that knew they always wanted to be a nurse. Any realistic assessments for me? I know if I went to school full time again like in high school, I would also do just as well as the others. HELP!

    Hey ammartinez! sorry to hear about your NLN experience. It actually depends on the school you're applying to. There are a number of programs with a number of requirements. In general, most programs I've heard of require at least 100 composite for the NLN. These programs are usually extremely competitive so you would need both a competitive GPA and NLN. Other programs would solely rely on your GPA. Some even relying solely on your pre-requisite GPAs (since you have no science bground, you could definately work on this. The school I'm applying to needs a minimum 2.8 GPA but the students admitted last Fall2006 averaged 3.48. Try inquiring about the programs around your area.... Ive heard of first come first serve schools as well, although the waiting lists are probably an issue!

    Good luck on your choice for nursing!!! And all the best!

    Well I got my scores back from taking the NLN on 3/24 and ewwww weeee....102 composite..I think 50 something percentile...Could've done sooo much better had a certain boyfriend helped me out a lil more and watched my son a lil more so I can study..So I'm gonna set to take it in Sept, so hopefully I will get in my Bio 224 or Micro...Maybe it will teach me some more. I suck at the vocab words and some of the math and oh soome science..lol. I'm so bummed. I will say it is a lil better then I expected...Got my scores back pretty fast...I got them yesterday so just under a week. I shreiked when I saw them in the mailbox. Well better luck Next time I guess....Congrats Batman on your scores that you were waiting a eternity for..
