PAX-RN stands for Pre-Admission Examination – Registered Nursing. Nursing schools use the exam to determine if an applicant has the skills and aptitudes necessary to do well in a program of nursing education. While a high score isn’t enough by itself to guarantee admission, a low score can ruin a person’s chances of being admitted, no matter how qualified they are in other ways. The PAX-RN test is a timed, standardized test consisting of multiple choice questions in three areas – verbal ability, math, and science. The National League for Nursing, which administers the NLN PAX test, doesn’t give out much information about the NLN testing process, but on a recent exam version there were 54 math questions, while the verbal ability and science sections each contained 80 questions.

NLN exam questions are wide-ranging, covering such topics as reading comprehension, vocabulary, biology, basic math, algebra, chemistry, physics, geometry, and earth sciences. There are no passing or failing scores; each nursing program has its own standard for acceptable scores. It’s critical to do as well as you can on the exam, because a person who performs poorly may only retake the test two times. Here at Mometrix Academy you’ll find a large number of free PAX-RN test prep videos that can help you do your very best on the exam.

So far I have been extremely happy with the reading and study material with this book. It is enough but not too much information on the topics needed to know about the exam to come. I appreciated the encouraging information and methods necessary to succeed on the entrance exam. Short and to the point paragraphs of important information needed to know for each section.

PAX-RN Secrets Study Guide – Linda

PAX-RN Secrets Study Guide – Dom

I was extremely impressed by this study guide. I have purchased test preparation books in the past and never found them to be helpful. It seemed like I was always asking myself why I got one of the practice questions wrong. However, Mometrix did a very good job explaining the reasoning behind the correct answer. I had no idea I could learn so much from a 150 page test prep book. I will definitely be going back to them in the future.
