Hi,I've considered going to nursing school in the past but I don't know if it's officially for me (I also think a lot about med school but haven't taken any of the prerequisites). I took the NLN-PAX on a whim...basically I was standing helping my mom register for something at the community college and it said the deadline to register was that day so I impulsively paid cash and showed up at the exam a couple weeks later....I have a NREMT-B certification and have worked as an ER tech in both trauma and FastTrack. I have a BA in English and currently work as a science/medical/technical writer--but my desk can be dull and I secretly miss the hubbub of the ER and hospital life.I'm in the midwest (Iowa/Illinois area....yes that sounds crazy but I currently live in two places) and wanted to know about programs that would accept my scores for admission. I have heard nursing school admissions are very competitive from friends who have attended nursing programs. I graduated cum laude from a Big Ten school with about a 3.6 gpa for undergrad but I hardly took any science classes. Would I still have to take things like Anatomy and Physiology? Can I test out of any of the prerequisites? I have done some research in medical history and had to learn a lot of the science stuff from that. I took AP bio in high school and got a 4 or 5 on the exam. I took nursing bio in college but that was it for science. My scores are as follows: Composite: 155. What is this out of? I have googled but I don't know. 175? 200? Do they use this score or the percentiles? Composite percentile: 99 for allVerbal: DI-99, AD-99, ALL-99Math: DI-98, AD-97, ALL-97Science: DI-99, AD-99, ALL-99Any information about how to begin would be great. Thanks.
