What does this have to do with nursing?

I can see the need to know math, bio, etc. but some of this test is just absurd.
Feb 26, '07Joined: Dec '06; Posts: 48; Likes: 3I took my NLN PAX-RN on 2/10 and just got my scores today. My composite was 129 and my percentile was 91. I had just spoken to my advsior this morning before the results came and she told me if I got 75th percentile or better I would have a pretty decent shot at getting in for the fall 07 program.
I'm excited now but it kinda stinks in a way. This morning when she told me that I needed 75th or better I thought there was no way I could have gotten over 70th...many girls at my school have been telling me they got in the 60's and are retaking it. I didn't think I did all that good and thought I would have to retake it too. So, when my advisor told me that I figured I'd accept my rejection this time around and should get in for the spring program with no problem. Now I have my hopes up again for the fall and will be bummed if I don't get in. She said I should know by the end of March if I'm accepted or not. I don't do well with suspense, lol.

The percentile score was in the upper-right corner.
Feb 28, '07Joined: Feb '07; Posts: 67; Likes: 3Hi Girls,
I have been reading all of your posts. I am from Texas. At our school you gain entrance into the program on a points system. First you have to take all the prerequisite classes, when you finish that you have to take Intro to Nursing and pass with an 83 or higher anything lower is failing. You also have take the ACT and the lowest composite you can have is a 19. You earn points based on your ACT scores, gpa and the extra classes that are required but not necessary such as: a and p 1 and 2, micro, humanities, speech. 50 are accepted per semester. I just got my acceptance letter two weeks ago for the fall. I am so excited to finally get in. It doesnt seem fair that your schools go only by one test. Some people just dont test well. I wish you all the best of luck

Our school goes by a points system too but it's a bit different from yours. They factor in the number of pre-nursing classes we have completed, the grades we got in those classes, and our nursing pre-entance exam (which as almost like an ACT). The only main difference is that we don't take Intro to Nursing until after we are accepted, an our school only takes 30 people each semester.

Mar 1, '07Joined: Dec '06; Posts: 2,135; Likes: 3,205I am taking mine Sat too in NJ. I am nervous, but want it over with at this point. Reading this thread will give a lot of great tips so I would scan it before sat.
Main point...try and stay calm and keep moving. If you have no idea of the answer skip it and continue. Don't stay on any one question too long as time is a valuble commodity during this test.
Report in after you take it. I will too!!

Mar 1, '07Joined: Feb '07; Posts: 440; Likes: 14I have a tip.
If you have to guess, pick one letter and stay with it.
I've heard by doing that you increase your chances of being right.
I did it....and I've done well so far!
