Can you become an LPN

Can you become an LPN

By Nancy Kimmel RN PhD

Licensed Practical Nurses are very much in demand in lieu of Americas nursing shortage. Becoming a LPN/LVN or Licensed Practical or Vocational Nurse usually requires a one year course of study from a vocational school or junior college. Even the LPN/LDN or the LVN must take an entrance test prior to gaining entry into the nursing program. The NET Study Guide will help the student prepare for their test. The NET Study Guide, written by Nancy Kimmel RN, PhD incorporates that same type of critical thinking that is needed in the nursing field. The student who studies the online tests and tutorials will make great strides not only in their scores on the NURSING ENTRANCE TEST, but in nursing school as well. The online software contains over 1300 questions and answers in the form of online tests and tutorial pages. The student can study day or night, and has unlimited access to the software without any expiration date. Not only is it important to have a good understanding about the type of nursing program that the student wishes to attend, but the student must also have a thorough understanding of the preparation needed for the NURSING ENTRANCE TEST. The LPN/LVN usually work under the supervision of a physician or RN and usually has more advanced skills than the nursing assistant but can perform less tasks than a registered nurse can. Again, most people who become a LPN/LVN are gaining the experience and knowledge that is necessary to become a Registered Nurse and may use this during future studies. The program for becoming a Licensed Practical Nurse or Licensed Vocational Nurse is approximately one year or less. Financial aid is available for this training program as well as many other sources of funding. Licensed Vocational Nurses/LPN’s make only a few dollars less than Registered Nurses. Read more »

Nursing Entrance Test, Math Calculations

Written by kimmel52 on February 21, 2009 – 3:14 am

Learn how to solve medication calculations correctly every time.

Medication calculations, hate them, right? 
You probably wouldn’t think that you would have to know how to do medication calculations on the NURSING ENTRANCE TEST.  You don’t have to fear medication calculations.  There are indeed problems on the N.E.T. that are medication calculations. The only thing different from regular math problems and a medication calculation is what type of formula to use. At the Nurses Learning Center the student can study online computerized tests and track their scores. They even get feed back on their answers and can see the entire equations solved right before their eyes. Learning math will not seem as difficult when practice problems are presented in an integrated learning environment such as the NET Tutorial provides. It seems as if there are no two teachers that explain the math the same way.  Don’t forget the stress associated with the tests.  You only get two to three chances and you are out of the program if you don’t pass.  Below you will find some sample medication calculation questions solved using dimensional analysis. If you can get a handle on using this technique you will sail through the hardest test.   Take a look at some of the examples below the product plug and Good Luck. 4. The order reads for digoxin 0.5mg po. Available to the nurse is digoxin 0.25 mg/tablet. The nurse would
administer how many tablets?
5. The order is for Bactrim 0.5G po. Available to the nurse is Bactrim 250mg/tablet. The nurse would
administer how many tablets?
6. The physician orders propanolol (Inderal) 80 mg po daily. Available to the nurse is Inderal 20 mg/tablet.
The nurse would administer how many tablets?
7. The physician orders alprazolom (Xanax) 0.25 mg. Available to the nurse is alprazolom 0.5 mg/tablet. The
nurse would administer how many tablets?
8. The order is for risperidone (Risperdal) 1 mg po daily. Available to the nurse is risperidone 0.5 mg/ tablet.
The nurse would administer how many tablets?

Take the NURSING ENTRANCE TEST AT HOME

Written by kimmel52 on February 7, 2009 – 4:08 am


Wouldn’t it be great if students could sit for the NURSING ENTRANCE EXAM in the privacy of their home? Well you can, almost that is. With the online tutorial testing program at the Nurses Learning Center, students can take tests that are similar in content to the NURSING ENTRANCE TEST., the HESI and the TEAS-ATT.When those of us contemplate going to nursing school via a community college or a university, our minds become flooded with questions, such as: “Which school should I attend? What type of degree am I going to obtain?; Am I eligible for financial aide; How expensive will it be.” These questions require answers. Or maybe you have a degree but need to brush up on some skills to keep competitive. An nursing education degree online may be the perfect solution for today’s busy lifestyle, but the individual must first realize that they have to take the NURSING ENTRANCE TEST. Many colleges are starting online accredited nursing degree programs. These courses are often equivalent to on-campus classes. They offer tailored instruction where you can go at your own pace and go to clinicals in your own work place. The first thing and most foremost in all of the prospective nursing school students immediate future is how to study and pass The NURSES ENTRANCE TEST.
Taking a similar test suchs as the NET, The HESI and the TEAS-ATT at the Nurses Learning Center helps the student to score high on their initial test. Using a computer may seem like an easy task to many, but in fact, there are a lot of people that do not know how to maneuver around a computer. Which is why practicing on a computer  by taking similar tests to the content of the N.E.T. is such a crucial step in the student passing the first time. The pre-nursing student has a lot on their plate each semester that they get closer to gaining entry into the nursing program. They are bombarded with many questions about their future classes that need to be answered. It is important for the student to speak with the Dean of the Nursing Program to get help as well as to ascertain exactly which of the NURSING ENTRANCE TESTS they should be preparing.
Learning where to go, who to speak with and what papers to fill out can be an education in itself. Take your time and shop around for the nursing school, college or university that best meets your needs. Compare prices and course descriptions.

What kind of one-on-one support do they offer if you have questions or difficulties?

Can you study at your own pace? “NOT in the initial Nursing Program, but perhaps in the prerequisites.

What are the costs? Can you get financial aide?

The pre-nursing student has much to think over and decide, while at the same time they must prepare for the NURSING ENTRANCE EXAM

Sometimes life’s circumstances dictate more toward the degree that would best suit us rather than what we actually want. For people headed into the nursing program, at lot of life can happen between the time that they begin to take their pre nursing classes to the time that they get into nursing school. To begin earning a nursing degree requires an extensive blueprint. Read more »

Nursing Entrance Test to Nursing

Written by kimmel52 on January 11, 2009 – 2:59 pm

Time to seriously think about getting started toward a nursing career

Time to seriously think about getting started toward a nursing career

The new career for many people today is nursing. The driving force for such a large interest in nursing has to do with the job security that this field offers not only job security but financial gain from higher salaries. However, although job security and benefits are very wonderful to have, the prospective student must realize that they have to pass the Nursing Entrance Test first, before even getting into nursing school. For many displaced workers a career in nursing is the first choice. However, with any life changing decision that has been determined requires the next step of having some type of road map to achieve ones goal. Finding and preparing that road map can be difficult and frustrating if the person does not have knowledge of reliable resources. Time is also an issue. For many, time is of the essence. Time seems to be an important factor in beginning a second career. First of all the age factor seems to scare a lot of people from attempting to achieve their dreams. Age shouldn’t be the factor that keeps people from acquiring or trying to achieve their goal. Age should be looked at in a positive light. The numbers are staggering at those entering the nursing field in their thirties, forties and fifties. Even with people in their fifties, they can look forward to twenty years of work if they so choose. Money is another factor that causes concern for people choosing a second career.   Read more »
