Hello everyone! Just thought I would get this started. I'm in the process of applying and taking the NLN exam sometime in April since I can only take it once for the admissions process anyways. Has anyone heard anything about the exam? Also, is there anyone who has done the MDC Nursing program and is willing to share their experience? Thanks!
Hey! Have you taken your NLN yet? I'm studying for it now and am kind of freaked out! Planning on taking it the end of April.
I haven't taken my NLN yet. I will be taken it on April 22nd. I scared too, but mostly by the Science portion.
u can take the nln twice but you have to wait 6 monty in between
Yeah. I really want to start in Fall so I pass, great, if I don't then it just won't be on my list of schools. I definitely dislike having to wait 6 months to take a test again. The 30 days with the TEAS was fine but they changed the exam.
How'd you do?!
How was the exam...what pointers can you give?
sorry I couldn't get back sooner…..wow…that exam was a killer. Very tough. I would say tougher than the TEAS. I passed but I really can't say how and wasn't expecting it. There is no calculator for the math section. Focus on percentages and the different type of questions that can be asked with it. Other than that, basic algebra and computations other than couple of geometry problems. Also, use the answers to guid you. That's what I did since I was pressed on time and it worked out. Passed Math with a 52%.
Science was the most difficult. A bunch of physics questions when last time I checked, physics wasn't required for nursing so I guessed a lot. Also, took some good guesses. Not a lot of anatomy or physiology on my exam. Basic Biology and scientific interpretation as well as some physical science.
Reading was a bit difficult but that's my strongest area. As far as the reading passages go, it's easy. The tougher part is the vocabulary. I didn't know a lot of the words and since they use synonyms as answered, if I didn't know what the choices meant, I was stuck. I just took the best guess I could considering the options.
Overall, a pretty tough test for me. On Science, I got a 60% and on Reading I got a 75%. Overall score is a 117.
Manage your time. I only studied for two days so I was really nervous. Just give it your best shot.
I heard they are allowing those who didnt score still apply. I wonder how competitive this got???
Yes I heard the same thing. Hopefully we get in since we passed!
That seems really unfair to me. I guess the exam was super hard but they should admit those who did pass first. You can't make the exam a requirement if you're going to allow those who don't pass, apply. Anyways, I hope that we all get in! I'm really liking the MDC Medical Campus so far but I have other schools I applied to so we'll see.
I heard it is for the FALL term only. Mayb since it's a new exam and not enough passed, perhaps, they are bending the requirements a bit. It could be that not enough students have applied so they must go another route!
