Hunter College NLN PAX scores 2016

Posted

Hello everybody,

I just wanted to compare this year's GPA scores and NLN exam results. I'm a transfer student from laguardia with a 3.6 (29 credits) GPA and can go up to 3.7 (38) after this spring 2016 semester. I'm gonna transfer to Hunter College this coming fall 2016. I already took the nln, and I'm just wondering how much is good enough to pass in the nursing program. Unfortunately, I got only a score of 126. I actually didn't finished the math section with like 10 more question remaining. I didn't handle my time really well. So, I might retake the exam to pull my chances up.

How about you guys?

I'm not sure how far along you are in your prereq study but you can retake the NLN every 6 months and Hunter will take your highest score. If you are applying to the generic program at Hunter, 126 is a bit low. If you are applying to the accelerated program, it is definitely too low. If you have a chance on your timeline to take it again, I would. There are some excellent study suggestions on the forums here.

I know. It's kind of depressing, but there's nothing else I can do but retry the test. Can you please tell me what study guides would truly help me achieved a higher score on the test.

I retook the test and I got a composite score of 135, and RN PERCENTILE RANK OF 91. I have 3.7 GPA now. Will I make it to the program? What do you think?

I'm currently a student at Hunter trying to get into the generic bsn nursing program. My gpa is a 3.6 and my NLN score is a 129 worried about being accepted BRYQJ7kUUyGmmaTpMgDCQpWiZx4Vysr19gcCVawACMbL5+wlFJenpKUCD8vOyMDAMt3QPF4YeY2AAAAAElFTkSuQmCC

Hello all, I am applying for accelerated programs in the fall of 2018. I just took the NLN-Pax at Hunter and am trying to interpret my results. I got a 144 composite and 97th percentile, which I think is pretty good. However the composite scores seem out of line with the % correct/percentiles indicated in the individual exam sections, which are lower for math and science. Based on experience is my composite competitive for admission to accelerated programs?

Does anybody know the average NLN score for Hunter's Accelerated Program for 2017? I'm applying to Hunter's Accelerated program for the Fall 2018 and was wondering if my scores and gpa are good enough to enter. I was told they are only accepting 25 students from the Hunter College advisor when I went in to register for spring 2018 classes.

Hi! I just wanted to ask - did you apply on nursingcas and on cuny for the upcoming fall 2018 semester? I've read on their website that you need to apply through nursingcas and also submit a cuny transfer application for the accelerated program in the fall.

I'm also applying to their accelerated program for the fall 2018 semester.

Yes, that is the correct application process. My understanding from their information sessions is they accept 30 students per year. I've also read subsequently that they hold 15 of those seats for out of state students and that there can be a waiting list if you are accepted.

Are you currently enrolled at Hunter and finished with all your pre reqs? I'm taking Micro and Genetics this Spring 2018 at Hunter. I'm worried because I haven't finished my prereqs yet, that this might affect my chances because it is so competitive.

Yes, I'm taking AP2 and Microbiology in the spring semester. Hunter allows you to have 2 prefers still in progress during the application process. If you haven't been to an information session, they are very informative.

I went to their infosession in the summer but I don't remember them saying how many prerequisites we're allowed to be taken in the semester before the fall enrollment. Thanks for clarifying!
