PAX Exam

The National League for Nursing Pre-Admission Examination (PAX)

The PAX, a standardized entrance exam for potential nursing students who seek admittance into nursing schools nationwide, consists of three tests - Verbal Ability, Mathematics, and Science at a high school level. One hour is allowed for each test.

The RN Percentile Rank will be used for admission to the Gateway Nursing Program. The exam will begin promptly at the scheduled time. No one will be admitted to the exam late. Once testing has begun, no additional students will be admitted into the testing area. 

The cost of the PAX is $70.
