AAS Standardized Testing Policy

Students in the Associate Degree Nursing program will be provided with a series of online tests and remediation resources designed to evaluate and enhance the nursing knowledge of students in an undergraduate program. The tests serve as nationally normed formative and summative evaluation tools for use during the program. In addition to testing basic nursing content, these tests evaluate students' critical thinking/decision making skills. The results enable faculty to identify at-risk students with knowledge and learning deficits in specific content areas in a timely manner so that early intervention may be provided. This program also includes an admission test to evaluate students' baseline reading, math, writing, and science knowledge and skills.
