Now there are available online, all the tests and practice tests that students need to be able to pass such tests as the HESI, The TEAS, HESI A2, and the NET.  These tests simulate the actual computerized tests and help prepare the student to pass with high scores.  Just go to the Nurses Learning Center and read more about the wonderful options that await those struggling to find reliable testing material that will help them to not only prepare for the Nursing Entrance Test, but pass the first time with high scores.
Students need some extra help in studying for the various tests that are currently out there. Unfortunately there is not enough reliable resources on the internet to help students sufficiently prepare for the nursing entrance tests. Even the companies that produce them, such as ATI, (ERI World), and others do not give students the necessary information. The only online practice tests that they give are such that the student has only a few hours or days to practice, then the service is turned off. The fee is sizable for their service. Here at the Nurses Learning Center, students can access tests that include Anatomy and Physiology, Biology, Chemistry, English Grammar, Reading Comprehension, and Mathematics. Over one thousand questions and answers are available to the students. They can track their test scores and determine their weak points. There is no limit, and the service does not terminate.

HESI vs. TEAS, What’s the Difference?

Written by kimmel52 on November 27, 2009 – 10:39 am

Nursing schools throughout the country are beginning to require a formal standardized nursing entrance test.  Pre-nursing students must pass these tests if they want their names on the waiting list for nursing school.  There is quite a long waiting list.  The average time frame for nursing school admission is anywhere from 2 to 4 years.  These figures represent the average of community college wait lists.  Colleges request that the pre nursing students take an entrance exam so that their names can be placed on the wait list.  Some schools require the exam entitled the HESI, while others require the exam called the TEAS.  Each of these exams are standardized in the curriculum which the students are tested.  Both tests include the following subjects; anatomy and physiology, biology, chemistry, English grammar, reading comprehension and mathematics.  Determining how to study for these tests can be challenging, especially when the actual study guides for each of the tests are not always very helpful if the student needs remedial assistance in certain subject matter.  The truth is that the two tests are very similar in their subject tests.  The company that produces the HESI still produces the NET.  The companies are very convoluted in who they actually are, since they are constantly changing their corporate names and headquarters.  Nursing schools are simply looking for a standardized nursing entrance test.  Many are requiring the nursing entrance tests that are more comprehensive than the original NET, which only includes math and reading comprehension.

One should not be surprised to see more and more nurse entrance tests emerging in the next few months.  With the job market skyrocketing in the health care field, many companies are going to emerge that will focus their energies on developing nurse entrance tests, or other generalized health care related entrance tests.  Students should always be prepared with the most up to date and comprehensive study tools.  The internet is filled with many loop holes, twists and turns that can frustrate the best of us who are looking for real documented, well written study texts.   Unfortunately there are study texts out there that promise much but deliver little in the way of preparatory material.  With such comprehensive subject matter, one could spend months studying for the HESI and TEAS.  The student should not panic, but remember that the best tests are written to encompass the main focus of all the subjects.  That should help to narrow the amount of study time needed.

For the most part, both the HESI and the TEAS are counterparts of each other.  Both include the same test subject matter and both are for nursing entrance admission tests.  The key is to find a study guide that will give a comprehensive tutorial on all subjects without being too lengthy.  The book entitled, “Pass The NET” does just that.  It is written with an emphasis on the nursing process.  This implies that the subject material is close to that which first year nursing students must know, with review of the body systems relating to the nursing process.  Which ever test, the HESI or the TEAS a student must challenge, using the book, “Pass The NET” will be a positive step at raising their scores as well as preparing them for the first year of nursing school.

Best wishes in your life’s journey.

The Nursing Entrance Test Can You Pass?

Written by kimmel52 on November 23, 2009 – 10:00 am

Nursing Entrance Test, An Introduction
One of the biggest hurtles that aspiring nursing school students must face is the Nursing Entrance Test. This is a nationally standardized test that is administered prior to placing students on the long waiting list for nursing school. Even if the student has passed all the prerequisites required for admission, such as anatomy and physiology, English 131 and 132, Sociology, Pharmacology, and Chemistry, this doesn’t guarantee admission to nursing school.

Although there are required passing grades, of a C at the least, the Nursing Entrance Test must be passed to be put on the list for admission to nursing school. This is by far the most nerve racking test that students must face. The main reason for this anxiety is that many students have come into the test either unprepared or just overconfident. Unfortunately, the preparatory literature that is currently available does not do complete justice to covering all that is necessary for the Nursing Entrance Test.

Most of the prep books cover a plethora of topics associated with various exams offered in the many fields of health care. This is insufficient for the knowledge that is required for passing the Nursing Entrance Test. Those who feel that the test is simply a remedial exercise in review are surprised when they sit for the test, because many have forgotten some basic math and algebra principals. Unfortunately, there are those who have been away from school for such a long time that when they sit for the exam they do very poorly. Some students have never learned math skills efficiently enough to be able to apply them in a test setting. The key to remedy much of this stress is to provide those students that are going to be taking the test with materials that will prepare them for exactly what to expect in the same method that the test is administered.

There is another level of stress that has been added to the test recently. That is, that the student is now only allowed to fail up to three times. After which, the student can no longer enroll in the nursing program at that particular school. For instance, Henry Ford Community College has now adopted this rule. This is very annoying and frustrating to those students who have taken all of their prerequisites and are on their last chance. They are faced with having to transfer their credits to another nursing school program and take the test again at another school. This prolongs their admission to nursing school which is usually a two to three year wait at the minimum. Some students have opted to take a refresher math course. However, this is in no way a guarantee that they will pass the Nursing Entrance Test. Much of the math in a remedial math course is not sufficient to pass the Nursing Entrance Test.

To help the future nursing student avoid all of this unnecessary stress, the Nursing Entrance Test Study Guide has been developed. The Nursing Entrance Test Study Guide is a comprehensive review of the Nursing Entrance Test. It is set up exactly like the actual test, allowing the student approximately one minute per question (although for practice purposes they can take as long as they want), and three answers to choose from, and includes all of the content necessary to achieve a passing score. The Nursing Entrance Test Study Guide includes a complete tutorial in all of the math and reading comprehension that the student needs to assure that not only will they pass the Nursing Entrance Test, but pass with a score that is higher than the national average. Some schools require a passing score that may be higher than another school.

The developer of The Nursing Entrance Test Study Guide software, Dr. Nancy Lydia Kimmel devoted much time and effort in making sure that the student is well prepared. In this aspect, Dr. Kimmel has been able to help those aspiring to go to nursing school the advantage of being able to jump the greatest hurtle, passing the Nursing Entrance Test, the first time.

The Nursing Entrance Test Mathematical Content

The mathematical content that is tested in the Nursing Entrance Test consists of solving the following; addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of mixed and improper fractions, manipulation of exponents, decimals and percentages, word problems, algebra problems including factoring, use of quadratic equation, slope of line, reading point coordinates from a graph, solving for variables in the first power and square roots. This may seem like a lot to someone who is hoping to go into the nursing field. However, this mathematical knowledge should be part of the repertoire for the student planning to take the Nursing Entrance Test.

For many preparing to take this test, trying to learn this from scratch may seem like a daunting task. Indeed, for those with minimal to no knowledge math this becomes a daunting challenge. Some students elect to take refresher math courses. These math courses are misnamed, in the fact that they are not so much a refresher course but a course that only covers certain aspects of the math that is tested on the Nursing Entrance Test. Depending on the teacher and the learning curve of the rest of the class, this may not help the student sufficiently. Many teachers adjust the content of the class based upon the percent of the class that has a difficult time comprehending the material. What this means is that if there is a majority of the class that is having a hard time with basic principals, then the teacher will not completely cover all that is required. This is unfortunate, because those who are picking up the material quickly are placed at an educational disadvantage and are not getting their moneys worth of education.

Time and time again, students have sought out new materials on the market to better prepare them for the Nursing Entrance Test, only to be given bits and pieces of information that is insufficient to pass with an acceptable score. Math is the enemy to many that wish to be nurses and is a source of dread when it comes to test performance. Much of this anxiety is due to insufficient preparation at the college and high school level. The population of new nursing students encompasses a wide age and educational disparity.

The typical nursing student is no longer the fresh high school graduate, or the young mother returning to school after her children reach preschool age. Now, nursing students come from many diverse backgrounds, such as engineers, teachers, computer technologist and people with masters and doctorates. Naturally, with so many degreed people entering the nursing field, the bar has been raised for the score needed to pass the Nursing Entrance Test at many nursing schools. This puts the typical nursing student at a disadvantage.

So, the question can be asked, what is the person to do about obtaining the skills necessary to pass the math on the Nursing Entrance Test? There is no simple answer. However the best answer is to study. Having the right tools is also necessary. One of the most helpful tools to achieve math proficiency on the Nursing Entrance Test, is in utilizing the software entitled, “The Nursing Entrance Test Study Guide”. This tutorial written by Dr. Nancy Lydia Kimmel, encompasses a comprehensive math review of all the concepts necessary to master in order to pass the Nursing Entrance Test with higher than national average scores. Dr. Kimmel has been a professor of engineering, math, physics and chemistry for over fifteen years and has had much experience developing tutorials to help those challenged by the sciences.

The Nursing Entrance Test Study Guide is presented in colorful Power Point slides to enhance the leaning experience for the reader. All three learning domains, audio, visual and written are targeted for the learners benefit. Dr. Kimmel starts out the tutorial with introducing how to add and subtract fractions that are proper, improper and mixed. The tutorial continues to increase in developing and review of math principals using examples and mini tests with complete explanations, until the learner feels that they have mastered the topics. Even if the learner has not had some math concepts formerly taught to them, this tutorial will assist them in mastering the skills. Dr. Kimmel’s software entitled, The Nursing Entrance Test Study Guide, has successfully helped many aspiring nursing students pass the Nursing Entrance Test the first time with high scores. It is Dr. Kimmel’s goal that the Nursing Entrance Test should not be a hindrance to those wishing to go to nursing school, but a stepping stone that they can confidently surpass.
If you have the desire to go into nursing, then you must first get ready to take the N.E.T., the HESI or the TEAS entrance test. You can begin preparing for your career by practicing your skills using the online tutorials and tests at The Nurses Learning Center. There are over 1000 questions and answers. You will get unlimited internet access, 24/7. It is yours to keep. New questions are added daily. It’s like sitting for the N.E.T., The HESI or the TEAS in your home.

Pass The Nursing Entrance Test Reading Comprehension

Written by kimmel52 on October 23, 2009 – 7:29 pm

By Nancy l Kimmel RN Phd CHMM

How does one approach the reading comprehension section on the Nursing Entrance Test? Many for one are unprepared for the wealth of reading that is required and the computerized method of testing. It can be difficult for those who are not computer savvy to comfortably navigate from page to another and go back to re-read. Time is of course of the essence in taking any test. The questions are at best hard to assimilate due to the ambiguous nature of the way that they are asked. This can be a stumbling block for those who are not prepared before hand for the reading comprehension section of the Nursing Entrance Test. Read more »

“PASS THE N.E.T. SEMINAR”

Written by kimmel52 on October 23, 2009 – 7:12 pm

How Did Our Seminar Go?
10/23/09
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.

Why is the NET Reading Comprehension so Difficult?

Written by kimmel52 on October 23, 2009 – 5:18 pm

One of the questions that I get the most from students and customers who call in is; “Why do they make the reading comprehension section of the NET so difficult?” or, “I have purchased all of the Kaplan, Princeton, and Barrons guides, and none of them have helped me to pass the NET. Why?” These similar questions go on and on. Here is the explanation that I give to all who call me; first or all, the NET is not written like a test geared for graduate school admission, nor is the NET reading comprehension written like the SAT, ACT or any college entrance admission test. Take it from someone who has taken all these tests and more as well as the nursing entrance test. The nursing entrance test is written to help test the critical thinking skills of the reader. So what does that exactly mean? Read more »

Testimonial

Written by kimmel52 on August 31, 2009 – 2:09 pm

This is a testimonial from one of my customers that came in via phone; “You have to check out the computerized tutorial. It is set up just like the nursing entrance test computerized version but more attractive to look at, if you are going to spend hours on the computer. The slides are timed for one minute per slide but you can go back and forth when ever you want and check your answer if you are having trouble with the equation. All of the equations are solved from beginning to end, step by step, so you don’t miss anything, and are not sitting there asking yourself, “how did they get that answer?”. There is even a voice icon that gives you an explanation just like having the teacher in your home. Great practice. Get at least an 80% on each test and pass the NET with confidence. The computerized tutorial really helped build my confidence at test taking as well as at math in general. I have always been afraid of math for the longest time. This software helped to explain everything that my teachers didn’t tell me or stuff I missed in school.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you,
Ken, Arizona
