I believe they all have standardized instructions for administering the test. I cannot recall if they provided calculators, but I do recall that we could not have much with us. I think I had a pair of reading glasses, a mechanical pencil and an eraser.

If I recall, most of the math problems were fractional. There were several basic physics problems. I remember 2 basic electronics questions and a handful of some basic anatomy (heart related) questions.

The number 1 thing that helps is to not be nervous. Eat before going, if you know any relaxation techniques, use them and just relax and take it easy. I am not a fast test taker and I finished all the questions easily in the time required. I even had time for a bathroom break in the middle of the science test.

Good Luck

Ooo, thanks for the tips! I'll have to go over my heart flashcards a little extra, just in case ^_^

For some reason, taking tests doesn't normally get me nervous, but I have a feeling I'll be nervous for this one. I'll have to look up some quick meditation/relaxation techniques like you said. This is a pretty important test to me, heh.

Composite 162 DI:99 AD:99 All:99

Verbal 58 of 60

Math 38 of 60

Science 54 of 60

Too bad my school weighs GPA more heavily than Test results. A 99th percentile is worth 38 points a 50th percentile is worth 29 points. A 4.0 GPA is worth 48 points, a 3.0 worth 24 points and my 2.5 GPA (10 years old) is only worth 13 points.

So if you pull out a 3.0 GPA and score 50th percentile or higher on the test you will beat my point total... sucks really! Fortunately once i finish my prereqs in the fall I get to bankrupt my GPA!!

Wow! That's an awesome score Keith. Congratulations and good luck getting into your program.

I scored a 142....97th percentile. I'm waiting to hear from my school about acceptance for Fall 2009. Any day now...

Hello! I meant to post sooner, but work has been crazy lately.. I got my test scores back from the NLN a couple weeks ago, and I was in the 92nd composite percentile, which I was so excited about! I took the test with over 100 people, so before I took it I realized I was probably not going to get in, but I figured I might as well take it. Good choice on my part, it seems. I then found out the next day that I'd be getting an interview along with 35 other people for the 10 spots available. When I went to my interview a few days later, they gave me a small math and english test (100% on both), and then told me that I got into the program!! ^_^ I'm so excited!

It really is nice and satisfying to know that I will finaly be making something of myself.

Also, wow Keith! I dont see how they could possibly not let you in with those scores. You did way better than I did, haha!

Good luck Lorba!! ^_^ You did really aweosme too, and Im hoping that you hear soon!

So I took the NLN today...can someone PLEASE help me understand the results?

The raw score...let say 42 out of 60...that's 42 right out of 60 right? So then how would you figure out the percentile out of that? Or can't you because it's weighted?

The composite score? How is that calculated?

Thanks tons!

Hi Everyone,

I took the NLN for the 2nd time and I did better. The first time I got in the 78 percentile, this time I got in the 89 percentile. Also my first composite score was 112, this time I got 127.

Any CLC Students: Do you think my new scores are good enough to get into the program?

I have 2 former classmates who just took there tests and one got a 91% and the other 94%. They both go to CLC. I would think your score is good enough but you can call the nursing division and ask if you are going to be accepted into the Spring program. They will be able to tell you. Good Luck!!! Congrats!!!!

since you all took the NLN, can you tell me what the actual test was like?...I've taken the TEAS and wonder if it's similar. I stink at math. I'm scheduled to take the NLN in December, but wonder the amount and depth of the math. Also can't quit the cigs until I know. Good luck to you all, and I'll be hoping someone will ANSWER me, because this is the first place on here I've seen the letters "NLN". NVR2late:eek:
