lpn step test

Nursing Students LPN-RN


I'm taking the ATI LPN step test tomorrow. It's the entrance exam for our LPN to RN program. This is the first year that they are using the step test. It was previously the GAP test.

There were 60 people invited to sit for the test and 20-30 will be chosen for the program. Has anyone had any experience with this test? My school does utilize the ATI program and I have all the practice tests available to me. I have met at or above national average with all of them so far. I took the practice test and made a 66% shhesh. Scary. I'm had all A's last semester. I graduate the LPN program in Dec. So, i think I may be at a slight disadvantage because I'm missing the last 1/2 of our last semester (3 total after prereqs). Well that all seems clear as mud. Just would love someone's input.

Hi everyone,

I'm signing up to take the ATI LPN Step test soon. Just so I understand this, the TEAS test is for pre-nursing students, and the STEP test is for LPN to RN bridge students right?? As far as the ATI Step test, has anyone taken it recently? How was it? Was it similiar to the NCLEX-PN? I'm planning to buy the online practice assessment of $155.00 and pondering whether if it's worth it :confused: or just study off my mosby's and saunders books like I did for the NCLEX last year.... Any opinions or insights would be a great help!! :D

Thanks in advance


How did you do on your test? How was it? Can you share your experience? Please :)

Thanks in Advance,

I have not taken it, want to know what I need to study for this test. What school will you be attending?

Our class is going to be taking this soon...I was just wondering if anyone had any studying tips or useful information? Any info would be useful!

Hello all! I just recently took the step test as a matter of fact just yesterday! It was very hard to me.........I've been a lpn for 5 years now and the test just told me I didn't know as much as I thought I did! Lol.........very heavy on pharm questions, such as adverse reactions and side effects! Ob and peds questions as well as priority questions.............study, study, study and good luck!

I am taking the STEP Test in March 2012. What are the best studying methods and guides anyone has found useful? I can't seem to find to much online and my instructors aren't really pointing me in the best direction. Is there a practice ID code to use on ATI? Or a text book? ISBN if you have it please.

Thank you so much!

Oh, and what was the major formating of the test? Like NCLEX?

Did you get into the program?
