Author Nancy L. Kimmel RN, PhD, CHMM, CPI, CNAT has been officially awarded a trade mark on the name of her book entitled, PASS THE NET™.
“Helping students gain entry into the nursing program is my goal. I believe that there are many wonderful people who should be given the best opportunity possible to pass the various nursing entrance tests that are required throughout the U.S. Students must be given complete and comprehensive study materials that represent the tests that they will take. My book, Pass The NET, will not only challenge their intellect, but simulate their critical thinking skills and give them the necessary and pertinent information to help them pass the nursing entrance tests.”
Professor Kimmel’s trade mark is just one addition to her repertoire of degrees and awards. Professor Kimmel was issued a Patent recently as well on a revolutionary air filter that can actually make a molecule of oxygen. As Professor Kimmel continues to be an ardent educator and author, she states that her goals are far from complete, “I hope to develop a website designed for nurses and those students desiring to become nurses that allow them to access many educational portals to assist them in their career goals.”
One of the biggest hurdles that students find in applying to nursing schools, is that now it is not enough to just pass the net. Now they must score in a sufficiently high percentile to be able to gain entrance into nursing school. With all of the other books that are on the market, Professor Kimmel’s, Pass The NET is certainly the best choice for students who are serious about pass nursing entrance tests with the highest scores possible. Professor Kimmel also has a website dedicated to online testing that parallels the material in her book. The website is www.nurseslearningcenter.com/testing
“Professor Kimmel, congratulations on your first U.S. Trademark on We will definitely be hearing again from you soon no doubt.”

Study Tips for the Nursing Entrance Test.
Are you one of those test takers that have to have a bag of chips or popcorn next to you while you study? Well if you are, then you are one of many that have developed this habit over the years. One habit that is extremely hard to break. Overeating prior to testing for the Nursing Entrance Test, the HESI or the TEAS Test, may make you feel better but it won’t necessarily raise your score. Overeating is not the healthy way to study.
A lot of people are overweight today. Obesity is due to various factors that have integrated of a person’s life, not to mention the fact that there is also a genetic predisposition to being overweight. Our society does not help those who are obese. Models that are paper thin are touted as beautiful, beer is advertised and many types of foods that are empty in necessary vitamins but high in calories. Therefore anytime someone comes up with a quick fix to weight loss, there is band wagon of customers willing to try anything. Unfortunately, some of these products interact with blood pressure meds, and can be very dangerous to the heart and kidneys. Fast weight loss is not the answer. The so called, “quick fix” is a false statement that many are led to believe is fact. The body is a miraculous machine which can adapt to many different environments and eating adjustments. Those people who have been struggling with a weight problem for years have to understand that it is going to take perhaps years to take off the weight and to learn how to adjust to a new lifestyle. Losing weight is as much mental as it is physical. Just a alcoholics must religiously attend AA meetings, the overweight individual must also surround themselves with mentors and stimulation to keep up a new style of life and eating habits. It has been proven that excess weight can cause a plethora of health related problems, such as high cholesterol, heart disease, lung problems, and varicose veins. People who are obese also suffer from anxiety, stress and low self esteem. Not all obese people suffer from these aliments, but there are many. Society does not help their plight at all. A support group is especially crucial for the obese person to remain strong and committed to their new routine. Knowing that they can contact someone at all hours of the day and night helps to relieve the day to day stress associated with eating disorders and anxiety attacks.
The obese person should first begin the mental commitment to change in life and eating habits. Any type of change requires that one accept the change and then adapt to the change. It does not help when there are other family members who are overweight. The gradual change in choosing the right types of foods becomes harder when those in the home continue to have poor eating habits. This can tempt the overweight person. Beginning the journey to weight loss can begin with a simple statement of, “today I am going to begin an new lifestyle”, or “Today, I will not eat 1 candy bar.” As the obese person gradually is able to meet the small challenges, they can increase their repertoire to greater challenges. Accomplishing the small steps are the most important at first. One may say that they will go up and down a flight of stairs twice. Once they actually do it they can increase their goals daily. The overweight person gains confidence when they meet their daily goals. This building of confidence will help them to achieve their ultimate goal of lifetime fitness.
Building confidence without snacks is the first goal that one should try to achieve before studying for the N.E.T. If one must have some type of oral fixation, then try broccoli or cauliflower with a diet ranch dip. Even low fat crackers are better than high calorie snacks.
Best wishes and good health while you study.

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 »
