The NET Reading Comprehension, Learn How to Pass

Written by kimmel52 on December 23, 2009 – 7:44 pm

Reading is the key to passing the NET reading comprehension tests

The Nursing Entrance Test Reading Comprehension

How does one approach the reading comprehension section on the Nursing Entrance Test?  No matter which of the nursing entrance tests you may be preparing for, whether it be the HESI, the T.E.A.S. or the N.E.T., each will have its own very challenging reading comprehension section.   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. Why is it that so many people have trouble passing the reading comprehension portion? There are several answers to this question. The first answer is that the majority of the population have not received enough training in how to critically think. In high schools and community colleges the need to push student’s to critically analyze what they read is lacking. This translates to poor scores on reading comprehension and hence the many pre-English classes that are offered. Unfortunately these courses are not always sufficient to prepare the student for the level of difficulty associated with the reading comprehension on the Nursing Entrance Test. The other answer is that sufficient preparatory material is lacking in the educational market. While there are various books touted as the official NET Study Guide, the core content need for passing is lacking. The best preparation just like any standardized test is to find similar questions and consequently detailed explanations. Once a student is able to understand exactly what is being asked of them the answers seen not as difficult. However, those students who do well with out any preparation are those that are avid readers and have been avid readers since they could pick up a book. 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 afore hand for the reading comprehension section of the Nursing Entrance Test.

To sufficiently prepare for the type of questions that are asked one must practice reading passages and answering questions in a similar format. The software, The Nursing Entrance Test Study Guide, has successfully prepared many nursing school students to pass the Nursing Entrance Test with higher than the national average score. This is due to the fact that the author, Dr. Nancy Lydia Kimmel, a professor of Mechanical Engineering, Physics, Chemistry and Math, author of several books on education took the Nursing Entrance Test, has tutored many students on and scored in the top five percent in the nation herself.

Upon taking the test, Dr. Kimmel conceived and wrote the software entitled, The Nursing Entrance Test Study Guide. Dr. Kimmel, designed the reading comprehension section in the same format as the Nursing Entrance Test and provided the student with complete explanations and methods for answering the questions. The essays included in The Nursing Entrance Test Study Guide are of equal if not longer in length from those on the Nursing Entrance Test and the computerized format is the same. This gives the student the advantage of practicing in a similar situation, thereby eliminating the initial shock and adjustment time needed when actually taking the exam.

The student can scroll back and forth at their leisure or use the timed method. Each of the essays deal with the subject matter that requires the student to carefully read and comprehend. Similar in format to the actual test, The Nursing Entrance Test Study Guide is an asset to anyone that is preparing to take the Nursing Entrance Test. All of the students who have used Dr. Kimmel’s software have passed the reading comprehension section on the Nursing Entrance Test.

One of the pitfalls that students find when taking the reading comprehension, is that they have a hard time assimilating new knowledge and answering questions that have a high level of difficulty associated with them. Dr. Kimmel’s software that also includes math preparation covers the important principals and assists the student in mastering key words when reading.

Certain key words are typically used over and over again in reading comprehension questions. Words, and statements such as, the author assumed, inferred or the paragraph stated are key to understanding and grasping the questioning methodology.

When answering questions, it is sometimes hard to relate concepts that seem totally unrelated. This type of questioning requires abstract thinking. The questions are designed to test the reader’s analytical reasoning while at the same time test their vocabulary. It is always advisable when reading to have a dictionary at hand. Other examples of similar reading comprehension tests can be found in graduate entrance exam practice books. Entering into the nursing field will indeed require unique analysis skills in many different forms.

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 N.E.T. First!

Written by kimmel52 on December 14, 2009 – 9:41 pm

By Nancy Kimmel R.N. Ph.D. mpj0185026000011

O.k., so you want to become a nurse. Good choice. Did you know that National surveys of registered nurses, physicians, and hospital executives document considerable concern about the U.S. nurse shortage?(1) Will you have job security? Absolutely! Now all you need to do is to become a nurse. As the population continues to grow, so does the need for educated nursing professionals. With such a strong need for nurses many would think it would be easy to get a nursing education. The fact is it may be harder than many people think. Today the United States also has a shortage of nursing educators and this makes many nursing programs hard to get into often with long waiting lists.
Getting onto these waiting lists is all dependent on how well the student performs on the NURSING ENTRANCE TEST This is a three hour exam that tests the students knowledge from reading comprehension to anatomy and physiology. Student aspirations of having a career in nursing can come true if they know how to study intelligently for the NURSING ENTRANCE TEST. This test can become a stumbling block for students who do not adequately prepare for the N.E.T. Comprehensive study materials can be found online at the Nurses Learning Center
Students have online access twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, as long as they need the program. Having access to a comprehensive battery of tutorial test that will help raise students score on the N.E.T is a must is the student plans to get into nursing school on the first try. Not pass the NURSING ENTRANCE TEST is a great set back for everyone trying to get into nursing school, and one that most people can’t afford to take.
Nursing forum – career planning and education advice for nursing careers

Even with all these hurtles in place, a nursing career is still a great choice as long as you select the correct career path. As with any career you choose, you want to create a plan and time line so you can advance into a senior position in the future.While in fact the program of nursing is a grueling one, the rewards of helping others outweighs all other factors considered. The five steps are outlined below.
Step 1. Have a great desire to help others. Becoming a nurse means caring about others as you would care for yourself, your children, your parents and other loved ones. Love of mankind is definitely a prerequisite. This is the most important step. Read more »

Nursing Entrance Test, Reading Comprehension Passage

Written by kimmel52 on December 9, 2009 – 8:12 pm


The following is an example of a reading comprehension passage that you would find on THE NURSING ENTRANCE TEST OR THE N.E.T.. The student who is sitting for the NURSING ENTRANCE TEST needs to remember that they must not bring any previous knowledge into answering the questions. The passage will be on a computer screen and the student must scroll through out the passage until finally arriving at the questions. Time yourself on the passage below.

Childhood behavioral disorders such as ADD and ADHD have been are on the rise. It is important for parents to realize that children are not fully developed with respect to their bone growth and metabolism as adults. Just as an expectant mother’s deficiency in folic acid can lead to defects in the newborns neural tube, so can metal ions and complex organic compounds cause damage to a child’s bones, liver, kidneys and neurotransmitters. Why should we as parents, educators and doctors treat the symptoms of the above mentioned disorders with more chemicals in the form of pills? It is interesting to look at what are some of the chemicals that go into foods that we consume regularly. Below is a list of some of the food additives taken from Casarett and Doull’s Toxicology, The Basic Science of Poisons, 4th Ed.,McGraw Hill copyright, 1991. Page 823. Read more »

HESI Reading Comprehension Example Passage

Written by kimmel52 on December 9, 2009 – 6:47 pm

Whether you are getting ready to tes for the NURSING ENTRANCE EXAM, THE TEAS-ATT, OR THE HESI, most likely you will have to take a reading comprehension exam. Don’t let these reading comprehension exams fool you into thinking that you do not have to study. Actually, the most important one thing that you can do to ensure that you pass the NURSING ENTRANCE TEST is to study. But find the right material is still another problem. At the Nurses Learning Center students can find all of their testing needs in an online tutorials with over 1300 questions, answers, tests, and tutorials covering subjects such as Reading Comprehension, math, chemistry, biology, anatomy and physiology and English Grammar. Below is a reading comprehension passage. The student is asked to read the passage within ten minutes and answer the questions that come afterward. The online tests at the Nurses Learning Center are written to help students pass the NURSING ENTRANCE EXAM the first time.
Childhood Obesity in Society Today
By Nancy Kimmel R.N., 01/09/2009

The media constantly bombards children with mixed messages on a daily basis. On one hand, children see advertisements that tell them to eat candy, sugary sweets, starchy and fattening foods and drinks, while on the other hand their entertainment peers are svelte and skinny. Children also face pressure from their peers at school, dictating styles, behavior, how to act, dress and what body size is considered acceptable. While parents are trying their best to earn a living many make amends for the time they don’t get to spend with their children by indulging their weakness for sweets, candy and starches. Hence the child is placed in a vicious cycle that they are unable to escape, and obesity ensues. Parents, teachers as well as the media need to take notice of this spiraling epidemic of childhood obesity. While research has made some progress in elucidating the so called “fat gene”, the hard truth is that we as a society must change first before we can make a difference in our children’s eating habits.

Nursing Entrance Test Math Section

Written by kimmel52 on December 7, 2009 – 7:37 pm

How hard is the NURSING ENTRANCE TEST MATH SECTION?
Does the NURSING ENTRANCE TEST, OR N.E.T. contain any medication calculations?
The answer is yes! This may intimidate many students who are getting ready to take the N.E.T. There is hope. At the Nurses Learning Center students can study online tests and tutorials with unlimited access without worrying that they will lose their access. There are indeed some questions requiring knowledge of medication dosing calculations. These questions however can be broken down into simple ratios and proportions. The student will be using these formulas quite a bit during nursing school, where they can expect frequent medication calculation tests. The N.E.T. Study Guide author, Nancy Kimmel has broke down exactly how to solve for these ratio and proportion problems at the Nurses Learning Center. Whether the student is studying the drip factor of an IV or exactly how much medication to dispense, the student will find the information that they need to pass the NURSING ENTRANCE TEST MATH SECTION.

It is important for the student to prepare for the N.E.T. by getting a thorough understanding of how to use ratio and proportions prior to nursing school. One of the reasons that so many people do not do well on the MATH SECTION OF THE NURSING ENTRANCE TEST, is due to their lack of study in such subject matter.

MEDICATION SAFETY

While medications do a lot of good, most of them can cause a patient physical harm or death if too high a dose is administered. Because of this nurses typically double-check  and triple check their calculations when they are giving a new or potentially deadly medication, or have another nurse check their calculations.  As a nursing student you will check every doctor’s order with your instructor before the two of you act on the order. For a student to give a medication or change an IV rate without consultation with a professional is not permitted by this School or the clinical agencies. Medication safety is crucial. Below you will find some examples of ratio and proportion problems.

IV FLUIDS

The amount of fluids administered intravenously each hour should never be more than you would want to drink in an hour. Most often doctors order only about 4 ounces of IV fluid per hour for their clients. The Metric System is usually used by doctors to order the infusion rate for an IV. There are 30ml in an ounce of fluid. “Infuse 125 ml/ hour” is a common IV order. If the client has a heart or kidney problem, IV fluids might be restricted to 50 – 80ml/ hour. More than that could cause their lungs to fill with fluid, drowning them from the inside causing congestive heart failure.  In the following exercises if you get an answer wildly different from these numbers, your logic should tell you that your answer is probably wrong.

BASIC INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT AN IV

  1. Usually IVs come in clear plastic bags with lines on the side showing how much fluid is left in the bag so a nurse can see how much of the IV has infused.
  2. The most common size is about a quart which is equal to 1000 ml. 1000 ml is one liter. The total amount is printed on the bag.
  3. There are many different solutions in these bags, but they all look the same. The name of the solution is printed on the bag. Even though they may be all piled in a heap on a shelf, it is critical that the correct solution be hung for each patient. The wrong solution could kill.
  4. The tubing that connects the bag to the client comes in different diameters. The wider the tubing, the faster fluid gets into the client. When you look at the box the tubing came in it could give a “Drop Factor” of 10 drops/ ml or 12 or 15 or 20 drops/ ml. When the Drop Factor is between 10 – 20 it is called “macrodrip tubing”. A drip rate can’t be figured out unless you know the Drop Factor for the tubing being used.
  5. Some tubing has a needle built in that limits the size of the drop that can enter the tubing from the IV bag. Pediatric nurses use this kind of tubing because their little patients can only tolerate tiny amounts of IV fluid. It takes 60 of these little drops to equal one ml. When the Drop Factor is 60 the tubing is called “microdrip tubing”
  6. All IV tubing has a chamber at the end near the IV bag where nurses can see the fluid dripping out of the bag before the fluid enters the tubing. This is where they count the rate of the falling drops using the second hand on their watches. So you can check your answers for logic be aware that if the tubing delivers one ml every 10 drops, a drip rate of 21 will give the patient 125 ml in an hour. If the tubing delivers one ml every 15 drops, a drip rate of 31 will give the patient 125 ml in an hour.
  7. If the drip rate is less than 10 drops each minute the client’s vein may clot off the IV, meaning s/he might have to get stuck again to start a new IV.
  8. Just because the IV is no longer in the IV bag a nurse can not assume that it infused into the client. It could have disconnected and be in a puddle on the floor. Nurses always check the client’s infusion site to make sure everything is connected and the client’s arm looks okay.

FORMULAE AND PRACTICE

The goal for these exercises is for you to be able to quickly formulate and calculate IV problems.

This is a useful formula to compute the drip rate of an IV. Memorize it. You will need to prove that you can use it in every clinical course before you will be allowed into the clinical area.

= drops/minute

Another way of saying the same thing is:

Example #1

Dr. A. orders your client to receive 125 ml of D5W an hour for the next 8 hours. The nursing unit used tubing with a drop factor of 10. What is the drip rate?

Fill in the formula putting an X for the drip rate because that is what you want to know.

Notice that the fact that the information about 8 hours was not needed to figure out the drip rate.

Example #2

Dr. B. orders a liter of D5W to run this 8-hour shift. The drop factor is 15. Put this information in the formula with the X in the spot for the drip rate.

Example #3

Dr. C. wants your client to have 50 ml of a pre-mixed antibiotic. The Pharmacy writes, “infuse in 30 minutes”. The tubing box says drop factor = 15.

Many Thanks to the wonderful faculty at Fairleigh Dickinson College of Nursing

If you would like to begin to prepare to study for the N.E.T today, you will be making a decision that will help your chances at being placed on the nursing school waiting list before the other testers.

TEAS-ATT A&P Review

Written by kimmel52 on December 7, 2009 – 12:10 pm

Anatomy and physiology review for the NURSING ENTRANCE TEST, THE TEAS-ATT, OR THE HESI, require that the student apply the nursing process. However, no one tells that student that those are the type of questions that they will see on the NURSING ENTRANCE TEST. The best preparation is for the student to read about how the nursing process applies to real world nursing, and thus see how their knowledge of anatomy and physiology is used in the health care field.

Nursing care for allergies include some of the following; identifying the level of health care deficit, providing comfort care, encouraging self care, promoting comfort, assuring that the patients airway is patent and free of any obstruction, and that is no further injury to skin integrity caused by scratching. Nursing diagnoses that are applicable to those suffering from allergies can include but are not limited to; impaired skin integrity related to persistent scratching secondary to an allergic reaction, knowledge deficit related to treatment of allergy symptoms and insufficient air exchange related to congestion secondary to an allergic reaction. Notice that nursing care and nursing diagnoses are not medical diagnoses, such as the diagnoses of an allergy or an allergic response. Nurses who specialize in care for patients with allergies and asthma are able to assist with diagnosis, establishing nursing care objectives and providing treatment. Nurses help determine the cause and treatment of allergic reactions, administer medication and monitor the patients progress throughout the treatment program. Allergy nurses must have knowledge of signs and symptoms allergic reactions and are trained to provide emergency treatments such as, resuscitation, emergency intubation and administration of proper medications when necessary. Allergy nurses help patients understand their conditions, medications and self-care skills.
To learn more about how to better study for the A&P section on the HESI, TEAS TEST, or THE NURSING ENTRANCE TEST, just go to the Nurses Learning Center.

  • Brave the hardest times. (There will be times that you will want to quit. Don’t ever, it will get better)
  • Bring chocolates on the day of a test.  (Eat a few before a test.  The brain uses 100% glucose, your score may increase.)
  • Buy your self a pair of comfortable nursing shoes. (You will be thankful that you did)
  • Book Bags are a no no, use the ones on rollers.  (Save your back)
  • Beauty is not important.  (Easy on the makeup)

Online Practice Tests now available for All Nursing Entrance Tests Nationwide

Written by kimmel52 on December 6, 2009 – 4:41 am

Students have to pass the TEAS, the HESI and the NET to get into nursing school. Finding the right tutorial can be frustrating. Now, students can have unlimited access to online tests that will help them to prepare for any nursing entrance test

Dec 06, 2009 – How frustrating is it when students aspiring to become nurses have to pass the HESI, TEAS, or the NET and the only help they can find isn’t enough to help them pass.  Even worse, the sites that actually offer the tests to nursing schools charge students a fee to access only a few practice questions and then only give them a few hours or days until their access expires.  Nancy Kimmel, educator, nurse and PhD recognized this fact long ago, and has diligently worked on preparing an online tutorial containing challenging test questions and explanations that students can use whenever and where ever they choose, as long as the have access to a computer.  With an extensive background in chemistry, biology, anatomy and physiology, math and reading comprehension, Nancy Kimmel has compiled all of her years of teaching and writing to give students the opportunity to pass the nursing entrance test successfully the first time

“Too many students find my site after the fact.  They have failed either the HESI, TEAS or the NET more than one time and they are desperate.  I have had more than one conversation that centered around helping a student calm down and gain confidence.”

Professor Kimmel has complied tests that cover anatomy and physiology, biology, chemistry, English grammar, reading comprehension and math.  All with detailed answers, explained in a manner that student’s can understand.  The best thing about these tests are that they are accessible online.  All the student has to do is to log on to
http://www.nurseslearningcenter.com/testing and they are ready to go.  Over one thousand questions and answers are contained in this online program.

The online program keeps track of the student’s scores, so that the students can see how they are progressing.
Professor Kimmel states, “It’s not about the money, it’s about education.  Students require real and applicable knowledge if they are to pass the various nursing entrance tests.  Unfortunately there are way too many sites on the internet that are just out there to make money advertising, and the students are led about from one site to another.  This leaves them frustrated and hopeless.  I want to be able to give students a legitimate study guide that will help them to pass the first time.”

Since the HESI and the TEAS are very similar in test content, Professor Kimmel has been able to combine a similar testing format.  The method of having online practice tests also helps students with test anxiety and helps them to time themselves.  Many of the nursing entrance tests are offered by computer examination only.  Students who are not familiar with computerized testing usually do not score as high on the tests.

With the combined test information put into an online tutorial, students are able to master the material and perform with more confidence thus increasing their scores.

Professor Kimmel states, “With so many people going into the nursing field, nursing schools are raising their entrance test scores to 80% on some exams.  In some nursing schools, only the students that score the highest are allowed entry.”

Professor Kimmel sees the need for more than just adequate preparation.  The online test questions are designed through integrated learning to increase the student’s knowledge base each time they master one test.  The material keeps getting more challenging.

Professor Kimmel stated, “If student’s can pass with an 80% or better on all of the tests then they will score in the top 5 percent of those testing.”

This is quite a statement.  But it is evidently one that Professor Kimmel believes students can achieve.

This Study Guide is designed to alleviate the stress by providing a clear path to “passing the first time”.

The designer of the online exams has personally tutored students success.
Dr. Nancy Kimmel, one of the authors of the Nursing Entrance Test Study Guide, writes:

“I can say with confidence, anyone who can score an 80% of the post-final exam for math and reading, will pass the Nursing Entrance Test the first time using this study guide. Many students simply cannot pass the Nursing Entrance Test the first time. I have decided it is time to change that. I encourage all feedback. It is my goal that this software will benefit all those who seek to become nurses. I am happy to help their careers along”.
