Using the practice questions: To help you study, a practice exam with two sets of questions is available for purchase with this exam. (See purchase details below.) Note there will be fewer questions on the practice exams. Generally, the practice questions will not be the same as the ones you will see when you take the actual exam for credit. They are intended to expose you to the types of questions you’ll encounter in the actual exam. Practice questions are a tool, and do not provide a full exam experience. For example, the practice question sets do not have time limitations. Begin with the Content Guide, especially the detailed content outline. Memorizing specific questions and answers on the practice sets is not as effective as using the questions to practice, along with the content outline, to see which concepts you may need to study further.
PRACTICE EXAM: Once you register for the credit-bearing exam, you will be eligible to register for a practice exam, for $75. To purchase the practice exam, which includes two different forms, you must also be actively enrolled in Excelsior’s associate degree in nursing program. Visit www.excelsior.edu and log into your MyExcelsior account to register.
