    Mystiqx - you did really well. I got a 119 with a 79th percentile. You have to make at least a 55th percentile to be considered so hopefully I will get an interview to plead my case.

    My worst was the science section - my best was the verbal.

    Nice score Mystiqx!! Glad you finally found out how you did!! And good luck to you n2btracy!!

    Is the reading/vocab section all in one part?! Do you get an hour for a total of 60 questions between the 2 parts?! I can't wait until next week. lol

    Thanks Batman24
    yes reading/vocab is all in one, its exactly like the way its set up in the study guide, and yes you only get 1 hr to complete it.

    I am going to have to fly through the vocab to spend all my time on the reading.

    honestly just keep your eyes on the clock, take a watch with you. If you come across a word you have no clue about skip it and move on. Don't read the passages multiple times, you waste time that way...gluck to you!

    I can't wait until it is over. After this one I need to tackle Accuplacer and then the NET. I will need a hospital bed with a nurse taking care of me. lol

    wow... i wonder if schools require an entrance exam why can't there be one standard exam, why are they like 5 different ones??????? If there is MCAT for med school and PCAT for pharm school and SAT and what not why can't there be one test, i dunno call it NSAT??? Oh well, i should be one to talk, i only applied to one school. Good luck with taking the other tests and what the heck is Accuplacer???

    Good job mystiqx. Batman I've been praying for you too. Good advice above. Keep a watch cause even though our proctors would call out 10 mins, 5 mins, 1 min. I still kept an eye on my watch the whole time so I could get an idea for how much time I had and how much time I should spend on a question---or if I should just go on.

    I got a letter from my school saying the committee will be meeting in March. So still a few more weeks wait for me to see if I actually made it or not.

    Prayers for doing well and prayers against nervousness for those of you that have yet to take it.

    well hi guys, I took the dreaded NLN yesterday 2/23 and I am not sure how i did, I studied from the Mary McDonald guide and thought i was pretty good at it. On the actual NLN test i got by fine with the verbal part, which was my biggest worry going in, the math which i thought was my best part, i think i did horrible at, i ran out of time and i had to guess tha last 10, the science part was so much different from the study guide, many many differnt types of questions, not much A & P, a lot of Physics and chemistry questions, had the one about the weight in Newtons, i choose 50, had the ? about who AB can donate to, i choose AB only, did not know the answer at the time just tried to reason it out, but later found that the answer was correct, hope i can help someone else out. I guess I got the nightmare new test a lot of you on this board seemed to get. Am very disillusioned about what the results will be.

    HELP!!!!!

    Mystiqx, 124 is very good! Give yourself a pat on the back rather than a scolding. I am so glad you got your scores in though, I can't imagine what it would have been like to wait that long. My math was the worst on mine too, but that was completely anticipated. Is it just the one school you applied to? What was minimum score you know of that they accept or is it based completely on your NLN score? You know what we on this site are so driven to succeed that we forget to remember the competition that isn't on here (because it's not that serious to them) and how they compare to us. When I took a personal survey of NLN scores at my school (which is one of the only accredited schools for ADN so very very competitive) I was shocked to hear how low some people scored on the NLN. Keep that in mind. I don't know if you read my Plan B thread but honestly after I got my NLN results I was pretty bummed, made my Plan B and feel fantastic and am able to concentrate again!

    Thanks DesertRain, i guess i was more upset at the fact that i spent 3 months studying for math since it was the part that scared me the most, and it was still my lowest score, but someone told me if i hadn't studied so hard it might have been worse. I only applied to one school, private Hospital ADN program, it had all the eliments i wanted and i would still be able to keep my current job.The school is looking for a 55 composite percentile for eligibility and they specificially want a 45 percentile on the English section (I got a 82%) I think i remember seeing the plan B thread i will definately read it.
    I think i am nervous too since i had alot of issues in undergrad and it may work against me. I just wish i didn't make so many stupid mistakes, cause now it may come back and bite me in the butt, i had no idea i'd figure out what direction i wanted to take 4 yrs after graduating college.

    I was the same way mystx...i graduated college almost three years ago (time flies...) and after spending all that time and money getting a degree, I realized that as much as i loved studying my major.. i had no intention of ever doing it as work! oops.
