    My friends will both graduate with a BSN. They haven't heard yet, but I'm excited to find out when people hear back about whether or not they got the job.

    Did anyone ever hear?

    did anyone take the pep and got '[color=#7d7d3c]candidates must receive a passing score in order to continue in the selection process. at this time, you will not move forward in the selection process for positions that have patient contact. you will be eligible to re-take this assessment in 6 months.'[color=#7d7d3c]
    ​is this a fail?
  11. by   netglow
    Yes, that is a fail.

    Just as it says you will not be considered for any nursing position for 6 months. This means that your applications in the future will go nowhere. After 6 months, you can apply again, take the test again (if offered to you) and the same will apply - you have to pass it to be considered.

    It's a stupid test. The only way to pass is to answer the questions as if you were an idiot. Remember this advice for next time.

    Geez that test made me question my own personality as a nurse.
    I love nursing ever since I was a child and I really do have a concern with patient's welfare.

    That program is EXTREMELY difficult to get into. They get 400 + apps for only a dozen or so spots per department needs. You have to be top in ur class with GLOWING recs. good luck
