NLN Testing

IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT THAT YOU SCROLL DOWN AND READ THIS ENTIRE WEB PAGE FOR DETAILED INFORMATION ON THE TWO-STEP REGISTRATION PROCESS 

NLN (The National League for Nursing) develops admissions tests for both the LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) and the RN (Registered Nurse) Programs. 

COST:  The fee for both the LPN and RN pre-admission exams is $69.00.  This fee is divided into a two-step payment.  Both payments are to be done during the registration process.  The payments are as follows:

  1. $39.00 non-refundable fee payable to the NLN
  2. $30.00 non-refundable administrative fee payable to Bucks County Community College.

Again, both of these fees are to  be paid during the TWO-STEP registration process (BELOW).

You may not test without paying both fees.  

If you should not pass the exam, the waiting period to retake your exam is as follows:

  • RN EXAM:   6 months from your original exam

  • LPN Exam: 4 weeks from your original exam date

To prepare for the LPN examination, the NLN has developed a Review Guide for LPN/LVN Pre-Entrance Exam, 3rd Edition. This guide is available in bookstores or directly through Jones & Bartlett Publishers (www.jbpub.com), 1-800-832-0034. The Practical Nursing department strongly recommends this review book to help you prepare for the exam; however use of this guide is optional and is not mandated. In addition, An NLN-PN Review Course is offered to help prepare for the PN & RNexams. For more information, please click on the following link:  PN Review Course
