Hi all!

I wanted to start a thread for all of the Spring 2015 MDC RN applicants. I finally finished all of my pre-req's, and have started studying for the NLN PAX RN exam. I am hoping this thread, like many other MDC threads of the past, can help us all to build friendships, support one another, and most importantly, help us through this difficult process. Welcome! :)

Hi lilian2727!

I was thrilled to see your reply just now. Welcome to the thread. I hope we can help each other get through this crazy process ( I call it crazy because that is how it makes me feel :eek:), as well as provide answers to the many questions we have now and will have in the near future. I am studying from the book you mentioned. So far I have been focusing on the math section. Where do you stand as far as your studying is concerned? Where are you taking Micro? I took most of my classes at the Homestead campus because I live in the area.

Hi Sperkyprek,

About the book sections my weakness is Math, i am horrible in math I can learn something but after some days, i forget everything. I dont know how im going to do in Math but everything is possible. I just want to think positive and do my best. I want to take the test around mid august so I can have more time to study. Currently I am taking micro in interamerican campus, and feel free to ask me any question

I understand your concern with the Math section. I would recommend going over it as much as you can, and watching videos on Youtube as an additional study aid. This is all about review, review, review. Don't feel alone, I am in the same boat. If there is anything I can do to help, please let me know. I will need to rely on you as well for support. How is Micro going? When I took it, I took the lab at the same time. I was overwhelmed!!! I can only imagine that taking it in the Summer is more difficult. I know you will do well. Just remember to keep your eye on the prize :cool:

Thanks for your help, also tell me about your grades. I am worried because I got a c in a&p I lab but got b in a&p I amd a&p II, got an A in a&p II lab got an A on chm and lab too. Idk if that C will affect me in getting accepted into the program.

Hey! I totally understand your concern. However, I think the best thing you can do is just stay positive, do as well as possible on the NLN exam, and truly believe that you deserve this.

My grades are as follows: Chemistry lecture B, Chemistry Lab B, A & P I Lecture A, A & P Lab A, A & P II Lecture A, A & P Lab II A, Micro Lecture B.

For me, what's done is done, and all I can do now is focus on the exam. I will practice my buns off and try to get the highest score possible. At this point, that is all either one of us can do. So just stay positive. I truly believe in that, and as always, let me know what I can do to help. I am always here if you need me.

Lilian, there appears to be a possible change with the entrance exam. I spoke with an advisor today and she stated that they are still reviewing all of the Fall 2014 applications and are not sure if they will continue with the NLN exam. I was told to contact them in a few weeks and check the MDC website frequently. If you have a chance, can you speak with someone and see what they tell you? We need this time to study, and the sooner we know what is going on, the better.

Thank you, lilian. I will do the same. I hope they continue using the NLN, simply because I have spent so much time studying and preparing for it. I know all of the standardized tests will require us to know similar info, but we are familiar with the NLN's format. Anyway, let me know what your advisor says, and when I find out anything new on my end, I will immediately notify you.

Hi, how are you?? I called mdc yesterday and the advisor told me that they will continue using the Nln pax, the only thing was that in the webpage the dates for june to take the exam were not listed but will be there aprox in a week. Right now i dont care about june because im planning on taking the exam on August. In the meantime will keep studying. The bad thing is that with micro and psychology my time to study is a little bit limited plus my 2 years old......
