Nursing Entrance Exam Thoughts

Happy Saturday, y’all! I hope you’re doing well and thanks for stopping by!
Today I’ll be sharing my thoughts on taking the nursing exam early this morning and how I felt before, during and after and what I wish I could have done and what I shouldn’t have done and everything in between.

As some of you may (or may not) know I’m currently going to school to be a nurse and have applied to my college’s nursing program and today I took the entrance exam on Friday at 8:30 a.m. and I was so nervous, but went in with a positive mind and gave it my best.

Now that I’ve given it a day to sink it, I’ve realized that it wasn’t as bad as I thought, but that I could have definitely done better. Before taking the exam, I was so nervous, but once I started taking the exam it slowly went away. The reading and writing sections were so terrible, but the math and science were kind of tricky. From the end results, I definitely need to brush up on my math and science skills, but thankfully I have nursing friends who are willing to help me out in giving tips and study suggestions. Once I finished I analyzed my scores and once I was done, I went to the nursing office and signed up for the second time around. I signed up for the 22nd of this month and payed the fee and everything is set now!

Because I’ve taken it once already, I have a good idea of what to expect the second time around. I plan to do more studying and practice tests during that time period and I’ve recently found a Kaplan practice test which will definitely help out! I’ve also used Allnurses.com as a good source to find out different studying tips and tricks. I’ll also use the Kaplan book for reading comprehension and writing and maybe math, too.

So these were my thoughts on taking the Kaplan exam for the first time and I’ll definitely be sharing my thoughts again the second time around! If you have any tips or want to share your exam experience, feel free to do so in the comments, I’d love to read about it!

Happy Saturday, y’all! I hope it’s a great one!

Are you in nursing school or are you in the process of getting in like me? How many of you are nursing majors, nurses or want to be a nurse? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I am also a nursing major. I am a sophomore and will begin applying to my school’s program next month! It is so exciting to find another person who is currently in the process of applying! Best wishes on your second time around.
