How Did Our Seminar Go?
Well folks we had a great time at the “Pass the N.E.T.” seminar last night. There were students all over the greater metro Detroit area present. A lot of learning took place. We had reading comprehension and math handouts, the Nursing Entrance CD, and a free subscription to the Nurses Learning Center online tutorial with practice tests, not to mention the four hours of one on one instruction and tutoring. It went great. We covered much of the pertinent topics, such as how to test smarter, not harder, tips on how to increase scores in the reading comprehension section and how to handle those difficult fractions in the math section. There was another seminar going on a few doors down dealing with improving reading comprehension abilities in high school students. They liked our handouts so much that they asked for some so they could incorporate it into their new curriculum design. What a wonderful night of learning.
There were many students that wanted to attend but couldn’t. They called asking if we were going to have another seminar. Indeed we are. Tentatively our next seminar date will be toward the middle of February. Look for flyers at your local college book stores. By the way, we would like to extend our many thanks to Pat, manager of all five of the Wayne County Community College Book stores who allowed us to put up our flyers, and a big thank you to our local Henry Ford Community College Book Store. We apologize to all of the students for giving such late notice regarding the seminar. So absolutely, we are going to do this again.
The staff at the Double Tree Hotel in Detroit, were courteous and professional in handling all of our needs. The tables had white table cloths with pitchers of fresh ice water and crystal glasses at each table. The participants had their own pen and pad of paper, and what beautiful room décor. We will certainly choose the Double Tree Experience again at our next seminar. Thanks again Double Tree.
In the seminar we covered test anxiety. This was a big topic. Students loose points due to test anxiety, even though they know the material. By tackling test anxiety and learning how to use visual guided imagery the student can increase their test score by ten points at the least. Many of the students had questions regarding how many times they could take the Nursing Entrance Test. Some schools will only allow three attempts, while other schools will allow unlimited attempts. Questions arose regarding whether or not the Nursing Entrance Test could be taken at one school and transferred to another. While some schools do accept the scores from other schools, it is not the norm. Most schools will only accept student’s scores on the Nursing Entrance Tests that they administer on campus. The NET (Nurse Entrance Test) is a computer based test consisting of six parts: math skills, reading comprehension, test taking skills, stress level, social interaction, and learning style. All six parts must be completed in order to receive scores and be considered for admission. However, only the math and reading scores will be used to calculate application eligibility. A reading score of 60% or higher and a math score of 50% or higher must be achieved for admission to one of the Maricopa Community Colleges’ Nursing Programs.
Math skills problems consist of whole numbers, decimals, fractions, percentages, number system conversions and algebra equations. Calculators are NOT allowed. Scratch paper will be provided.
Reading comprehension involves reading selections and answering questions. Not only do most schools prefer their student’s take the Nursing Entrance Test on their campus, but there are many versions of the N.E.T. circulating throughout the various nursing schools throughout the United States, such as the H.E.S.I., the ATT, and the T.E.A.S.. With all these variations of the N.E.T. it is no wonder that student’s have trouble with their search for reliable study materials. It is for this reason that we developed a comprehensive online tutorial platform that includes Anatomy and Physiology, Chemistry, Biology, English Grammar and heavy on the Math and Reading Comprehension. In doing this we have helped students prepare for any and all Nursing Entrance Tests successfully. Participants at the seminar were very pleased with all of the help and free software that they received. We are going to keep on developing more and more practice tests. We want everyone to pass the Nursing Entrance Test the first time.
