What is NLN Examination?

  1. I've been told I need to take this test and pass it with a 50 or better before being admitted to the nursing program. What does this test covers? I would like to know to better prepare myself for it. Thankyou all..............

    The NLN Pre-Admission Examination is an aptitude test required for admission to the nursing program.

    Verbal Ability Test: consists of word knowledge and reading comprehension sections.

    *Mathematics Test: measures examinees' skills in basic arithmetic calculations as well as elementary algebraic and geometric concepts. Both straight computational and word problems are included.

    *Science Test: evaluates knowledge of high school-level general science, chemistry, biology, and physics, with particular emphasis on those areas most applicable to the nursing curriculum.
