    Hi everyone!!!
    I'm a newbie. I take my pre-entrance exam 4/19..this coming Thursday. And to be honest.... I am sooo not prepared . Reading this thread has me in panic I will try my best, but I do feel that I will have to take the exam again next semester. Yup..i'm that unprepared. I jumped on the list for the exam last minute. If I don't get a high score, I'll continue to finish up my other required courses & get them out the way. So when it's time for me to do clinical and my nursing courses, I won't have to worry about any more Bio courses, math courses, psychology courses or english. I'm sooo stressed with all of my other classes, it's hard to get in the groove of preparing for this exam.

    Question. How much time did you take to study before taking the exam?

    Hmmm... so the NLN is the exam that most of you take to get into the nursing program? In my school, we take the HESI exam to get into the program. Well anyway, good luck to all of you who are awaiting your scores

    Does anyone know if the percentiles are based on that specific test taken or overall tests taken? I recently got my NLN Test results back and I dont know how but I got a 138, 97th percentile. After reading all the high scores on here I cant fathom how that is in the 97th percentile. Dont get me wrong, I'm happy, scratch that, frigging estatic that I scored so high, but I'm not too sure how the percentiles work.

    this is from the nln website:

    percentile score

    each percentile score indicates the percent of the norms group who received raw scores lower than the raw score under consideration. for example, a student might have a total raw score of 97, with an equivalent percentile of 73. this would mean that 73% of the students in the norms group received raw scores that were less than 97 on that test.

    and the norm period:

    norms period, which specifies the time during which those included in the norms groups were tested.

    on my report it says norm was 25,034 from 01-02

    Thanks, I was looking for that information. I guess I totally overlooked it on my scoresheet because I was so in shock.

    Hello all! I'm a newbie here. I also just got my NLN results back. 149, 99th perc. Yippee!!! One thing that is very confusing on the results are the 3 columns of percentiles (DI, AD, ALL). I think those are compared with the national norms, but the composite percentile at the top is how you compared with the other students who took the test @the same place and time as you. Only those test takers who were in the room with you. I could be wrong about this, but that's what everyone on campus has told me.

    Yeah, thats why you shouldn't listen to gossip If you look at the NLN website or read the info at the bottom of your reporting sheet, you will see that DI shows you how you ranked as far as ppl applying to a diploma program, AD= associates degree program and all is everyone combined. So that explains the 3 columns, now the columns are broken into rows. Your composite score of 149 ranked you in the top 1% for all people that took the test in the norm period. Then they break down the different sections below that too. Hope that made sense
