College Testing Policy

All NLN PAX scores must be sent directly from NLN.

The College testing policy is:

Applicant may test one time every six months. No applicant will be reconsidered if an exam is taken sooner. Your original NLN Pax Score will count towards your application to the program. Applicant can retest at the six-month mark and reapply if they have already received their admissions decision. Applicant may not use any type of calculator during an exam and all cell phones, tablets, and electronic devices must be turned off. No smart watches are permitted while testing.
