    I took it back in the spring.. it wasn't so bad... although we'd not yet studied psych, peds or ob when I took it... I still got a 83% chance of passing NCLEX on first try... there were some in my class who got like a 2%... they were just taking the test because they had to - I was taking it because I wanted a measure of how well I would possibly do... Good luck to you!

    Thanks for the luck!! I know I'll need it soon!! This was my first time taking the NLN and it is required before admittance into the R.N. program. I will have on more chance to take it if I do not do so well this time. I hope I did good though!! I think I did pretty well in the Math and english parts, but the science.........?? Geez, i hadn't heard of half of the things they were asking on there!! I am taking anatomy 1 next quarter, that should help me for next test taking time, if needed. Katie

    I took the NLN last fall. I hadn't taken Bio, A&P or any math yet and I did ok. I'm going to retake it this fall to see if I can score higher. I passed it, it's also required to get into my program.
    What composite score do you need to get into your program with? My school required a 100 and then anything above that you recieve bonus points so that's why I'm retaking it. Did you use the study guide? I think it helped me get familiar with the format and some of the Vocab.
    I'm sure you did good!

    I took it for RN admission, it's a pre entrance test that cover Bio, Vocab, Math. there are also some questions regarding nursing, but they are not scored, just to see where people who are taking the test stand. They also have a test for LPN

    Agent, there is a study guide the NLN puts out, you can get it at Barnes and Noble or Borders, or click on the above link.
