COST: The fee for the RN pre-admission exams is $75.00. This fee is divided into a two-step payment. Both payments are to be done during the registration process. The payments are as follows:

- $40.00 non-refundable fee payable to the NLN
Again, both of these fees are to be paid during the TWO-STEP registration process (BELOW).
