Hi, I was wondering who is planning on applying at IRSC for the fall 2019 semester? I know it's still early but applications will be due before we know it. I'm hoping to set up a forum where we all support each other by sharing what we are doing to prepare for the NLN.  I bought the red book and also an APP called NLNPAX.  I prefer the APP because I can review a couple of questions during my downtime without committing a lot of time. I think repetition is key.

Good luck and happy studying!

I recently submitted my application online and I'm waiting to register for the NLN on 4/4. I attended the last two NLN study sessions in the health building on Tuesday nights. I also have the app. Does anyone know what the cut off was for the scores in the spring?

The score you have to receive on the NLN to be eligible for the program is 110. Last year people started getting accepted to the program with a total score (NLN+MCB+A&P) around 160. The last time I applied I scored a total score of 155 and got in as an alternate. It seems to vary a lot. I had a friend that got into the program two years ago with a total score of 153.

Hi everyone 

I'm applying to the nursing program this fall too. I've been attending the study sessions on Tuesdays. I also purchased the red book, NLN pax, and recently purchased the practice questions from the nln site. Still don't feel confident about taking this test in May 😫

If you Google NLN question mark on demand it should let you create an account.

Good luck to everyone taking the NLN this week. Keep calm, trust in yourself, and don't overthink. 🙏

I took the NLN yesterday and received a 141. I have a total of 173 points. I hope that's enough to get into the program. 

I hope everyone did well on the test. It definitely was not easy.

Let the waiting begin! ❤️

I studied the red book. Some of the passages from the red book were on my test. I made sure to time myself when reviewing because the first time I took the NLN I ran out of time on the reading portion. I also went to the test-taking strategies review, offered by IRSC.

Did you find the red book helpful for the science portion of the test?
