  1. NLN Pre-RN/PAX Tips and Strategies

    Think of it like the SAT. It's a way schools can see how you do stacked up to your peers and is also an admissions indicator. It can definitely help an application by having a high score.
  2. Think a 3.0 grade is bad in a prerequisite class?

    It truly depends on the area in which you're applying. If it's an impacted area, you should probably retake.
  3. Prerequisites - How long do they take?

    As above, it depends on how many classes you need to fulfill your school's requirements. I went part time with one class at a time and it's been two years. Your mileage will vary.
  4. I'm scared

    I did the same with a science and worked full time... It's doable, but don't expect to have a thriving social life. The key is to stay slightly ahead of the material... That way by the end of the session you'll have an extra week or so to prep for th...
  5. Microbiology

    No, just AP1.
  6. pax (nln)

    It's based on those who are also applying to similar programs. The test is not pass/fail... It's percentiles. Most programs require you score a 50th percentile or higher to be competitive.

    I just turned down my seat this past week. I hope it frees up some space for someone. Good luck!
  8. Failing Statistics. Do I have a chance at passing?

    Why are you missing exams?
  9. Going back to school @ 26

    Lol, you're still young. I'm 27, and am just finishing up my prerequisites. If you want to do it, you just do it. Take the first step.
  10. pax (nln)

    Scoring is from 0-200 with no correlation to percentages. They're percentiles based on your performance vs. others
  11. La Salle Achieve Interview?

    Hi, everyone... I'm all done with the application to the evening program and I'm scheduled to meet with the Assistant Director for a file review. Has anyone gone through this? Is so, what does it entail? I usually do well in interviews but was wonde...
  12. NLN guide for taking Pax exam?

    I took the test with all of my sciences done aside from Micro. I scored in the 99th percentile. The book is definitely helpful and the test format was pretty much exactly the same. There were some weird electricity questions and my test was heavy in ...
  13. FAFSA help for pursuing a second Bachelor's degree

    You're still an undergraduate. 5th year.
  14. When did you know you wanted to be a nurse?

    It's been a few years coming. I should have listened to the signs. I was in undergrad for Psychology and I bumped into a nursing supervisor when I was working retail. She saw me and we got to talking... She asked me why I am not going for nursing. I ...
  15. Should I make a stink about this?

    All I really saw in your posts was an intense defensiveness and you flexing for no reason. I understand being frustrated, and I've been there many times while taking courses to get into a nursing program, but there is a way to go about it. There was ...
