Dance Your Way to Passing The N.E.T.
By Nancy Kimmel RN, PhD, CHMM, CNAT, CPI (ACA), NHA
Yes, you may think this rather funny. The reality is that dance is a great way to relieve stress. Therefore, if you relieve the stress, you have a better chance at passing the nursing entrance test.
One does not have to be a prima ballerina to enjoy the health benefits of dance. Dance comes in many styles, and most of us at one time or another danced to our own drum. Moving to music is a natural way of staying healthy, losing weight and keeping fit, and lowering your stress level.
One is never too old to begin dancing their way to fitness. The nice thing about dancing is that a person does not have to go by a structured routine. You can make up your own routine as you go along. Put on your favorite music and dance. It is a good idea to have your own space, just in case someone walks in and surprises you. Don’t be embarrassed. You are doing something that is fun and achieves a goal of good health. Dancing helps the cardiovascular system, circulation and balance.
The warm up; prior to your own routine you should do some warm up exercises. These exercises include leg stretches, arm stretches and back stretches. Begin by sitting on the floor, use a pillow for comfort, and spread your legs like the letter V. Now lean from side to side and keep it up until you feel the muscles in your legs begin to stretch. Next, lift your arm over your head as you stretch from side to side, trying to bring your arm all the way over and touch your knees. Keep this up for twenty minutes of so, until your leg muscles warm up. For back stretches, you can simply use your kitchen counter and hold on to the counter while you lean back. Don’t lean too far, only to the point that is comfortable for you. Once you are done stretching you are ready to dance. What do you do if you never learned to dance? Just make up your dance. As you listen to your favorite music try to keep the beat to the music. Listen to the rhythms, and move your body with the beats. At first you may feel awkward, but then you will begin to develop your own rhythm expression. It is lots of fun. As you continue this as a daily routine, you will soon see results. You will have more energy, feel more fit, and breathe better. Daily adherence to a dance routine will help you feel more confident and also build muscle strength.
Choose different types of music after you feel comfortable with body rhythm movements. It is very exciting to listen to different genres of music from various countries and cultures. You may even find yourself making your own unique dance routines. There are many places to go if you want to learn dance. There are classes for toddler to seniors. Have fun and live life a bit happier with DANCE!Ballet is one of the hardest dances out there but it can give your body benefits especially in keeping it fit. Aside from being a wonderful form of art, more and more people are taking ballet classes because the training can help them achieve the body frame they want.
Unlike in other dances that involve free movements, ballet requires precise steps and specific movements. This mastery in precise movements can only be achieved when you undergo training with various ballet techniques. These techniques are composed of well-defined positions and flexible movements, which are standard in most ballet schools.
Not that you have to go to ballet school before sitting for the nursing entrance test. However, dancing is the best way to relieve stress and get limber for the three hours of testing that await those getting ready to pass either the N.E.T., the TEASE Test or the H.E.S.I..

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 »

The student who is studying for the NURSING ENTRANCE TEST, THE HESI OR THE TEAS-ATT, will have to take an exam on anatomy and physiology. Preparing for this section is not easy. It is very difficult to remember every piece of information from two semesters of anatomy and physiology. At the Nurses Learning Center, students are able to study A&P in a logical fashion that pulls all of their knowledge together and applies the concepts that they have learned in real life situations.
An example of how to study anatomy and physiology is by looking at the bowel and intestinal tract through types of infections and aliments that can occur. This is one of the best ways to study for THE NURSING ENTRANCE TEST. Below is an explanation of how ulcerative colitis begins and its signs and symptoms. Keep in mind while reading the passage what you have learned from anatomy and physiology, and try to see how the endocrine system and the digestive system come into play.
Ulcerative colitis usually appears with chronic symptoms from mild to severe. These symptoms include but are not limited to bloody diarrhea, abdominal pain and cramping, fever, malaise, anorexia, tachycardia and dehydration.
With the milder form of the disease, diarrhea and abdominal pain may be mild, unless there is a perforation in which the pain becomes much worse. In the moderate disease an individual may have up to five stools per day. In the severe form of the disease, an individual can have up to ten or more stools per day. Ulcerative colitis is a disease that causes inflammation and sores, called ulcers, in the lining of the rectum and colon. Ulcers form where inflammation has killed the cells that usually line the colon, then bleed and produce pus. Inflammation in the colon also causes the colon to empty frequently, causing diarrhea
When the inflammation occurs in the rectum and lower part of the colon it is called ulcerative proctitis. If the entire colon is affected it is called pancolitis. If only the left side of the colon is affected it is called limited or distal colitis. Ulcerative colitis can occur in people of any age, but it usually starts between the ages of 15 and 30, and less frequently between 50 and 70 years of age. It affects men and women equally and appears to run in families, with reports of up to 20 percent of people with ulcerative colitis having a family member or relative with ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease. A higher incidence of ulcerative colitis is seen in Whites and people of Jewish descent.
With any disease there are complications that can arise. Read more »

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 »
