NMC Nursing sets admissions examination for fall semester

Posted on Dec 03 2019

The Northern Marianas College Nursing Department will be implementing an admissions exam for students seeking admission into their Nursing Program for the fall 2020 semester.

Students who have completed and passed the core course and general education requirements (as listed on the Associate of Science in Nursing Individualized Degree Plan) with a “C” grade or better and have met/exceeded the required grade point average will be required to take the admissions exam to determine their acceptance into the program.

NMC’s Nursing Department uses the Kaplan’s Admissions Test (Standardized Nursing School Entrance Exam), also known as KapTest.

Kaplan’s Admission Test is a tool to determine if students have the academic skills necessary to perform effectively in a nursing program. The admission test is a 91-question, multiple choice test that evaluates the basic reading, math, writing, and science skills of students seeking entry into a nursing program leading to registered nurse licensure. The KapTest is available free of charge to eligible NMC pre-nursing students applying for admission into the nursing program.

Applications for admission into the nursing program will be accepted from April to May 2020. The date to take the exam will be scheduled around June 2020. In July, the final decision for admission into the program will be sent out to those students that have applied for the fall 2020 semester.

Eligible pre-nursing students who want to prepare in taking the KapTest can purchase the Kaplan Nursing School Entrance Exam review book available for the admissions test on Amazon. It is also recommended for students to purchase a SAT review book as well.
