    Jsadler,

    I got my Varicella Boosters at the Floyd County Health Dept. It is behind the Floyd Memorial Hospital and they only charge $5! Super cheap!

    Nope, you just call and make an appointment. I got all of my shots there, but I have to go somewhere else and get my physical. I work downtown so it was a quick jump over the bridge, plus I was having trouble finding any place in Louisville to do it. I was able to get in the same day and the lady that does them (her name is Robin) is super nice.

    Has anyone taken the Pax-PN entrance test & what was their score. Is the scoring any different than the CPAt? I took my entrance exam a couple weeks ago but got a lower score than what everyone on here is getting for the CPAt test!!! Now I am very nervous b/c it was a tough test with lots of chemistry. I am applying for the April 2010 quarter because of work. I'm hoping I get accepted but now with other test scores....I'm not very optimistic

    I am taking the PAX-PN exam later this month and want to attend Galen's night LPN program.

    Does anyone know if, as a part of the LPN program, you become IV certified? Is that something I need to do separately, or does it roll in with the program? Thank you!

    If you are in KY, IV certification is generally not part of any nursing program, and certification is not needed to insert peripheral IVs. However, you will receive IV insertion training in the RN portion of the program at Galen.

    Hi, I need basic information of what to expect from Galen, interested in attending school and was told about entrance exam PAX PN. Personally had never heard of this test, and was wondering what it consists of and if there are books similar to study prior to. I would appreciate it,thnx.

    The Pax-PN test is a 4 hour nursing entrance exam that consists of three main areas: verbal skills, including word knowledge and reading comprehension; mathematics, including basic calculations, word problems, and incorporating algebra, geometry, conversions, graphs, and applied mathematics; and science, examining chemistry, physics, biology, human anatomy, human physiology, and health. There are study guides that you can purchase, however I just went to my local library and checked out a good called "The Study Guide for Nursing Entrance Exams." I really liked the book and it prepared me well for the PAX-PN.
    Your results are mailed to you within one week.
