Frequently Asked Questions about the Kaplan Nursing Entrance Exam

Learn everything you need to know about the Kaplan Nursing Entrance Exam. If you don’t see your question answered below, send us a chat message! 

Kaplan Nursing Admissions Test vs. Kaplan Nursing Entrance Exam, is it the same?
Yes, all of the names are interchangable and refer to the same entrance exam.

Kaplan Nursing Test, Kaplan Nursing Admissions Test, and Kaplan Nursing Entrance Exam all refer to the same exact test. Regardless of what your program calls it, the format and subject matter are the same. 

What is on the Kaplan Nursing Entrance Exam?
There are four sections on the Kaplan Nursing Entrance Exam.

The Kaplan Nursing Entrance Exam consists of 91 questions in math, reading, writing, and science. Most schools administer it as a timed test, and students have 2-2.5 hours to complete all four sections.  

The math section will test a student's ability to solve mathematical equations that require one-step or two-step algebra, conversions, proportions, ratios, percentages, fractions, and decimals, and setting up an equation from a word problem. 

The reading section will test students on their reading comprehension skills, focusing on skills such as evaluating the author's purpose, identifying the main idea or topic sentence, credible sources, types of passages, and making inferences or drawing conclusions from the text. 

The writing section will ask students to answer questions about the writing process, writing mechanics, and writing logic to develop an idea or paragraph. 

The science section will test your understanding of the concepts from A&P 1 and A&P 2 and some biology questions. There is no chemistry or scientific reasoning on the Kaplan Nursing Entrance Exam. 


How do I study for the Kaplan Nursing Entrance Exam?
Most students need 8-12 weeks to prepare for the Kaplan Nursing Exam.

If you've recently completed your prerequisites, you might need just 4-6 weeks of study to prepare for the exam. If it's been over a year since you finished your prerequisites, plan for 2-3 months of study. For those who haven't taken a college-level class in several years, 4-5 months of preparation is advisable. This approach will not only ensure you're ready for the entrance exam but also set you up for success in your first semester. 

You do not need to plan on spending hours per day studying and cramming. That is not recommended and is not an effective study strategy. Instead, get a reliable Kaplan Nursing Online Course and plan to study no more than 6-8 hours a week. Using an online course makes studying simple and more interactive, resulting in a better learning experience and higher chances of retaining the information. 

Don't waste time and energy trying to source dozens of different materials or memorizing questions. 

Where do I begin my studying for the Kaplan Nursing Entrance Exam?
Begin with a practice test, get a credible study resources, and create a realistic plan.

The ideal starting point for preparing for the Kaplan exam is to take a free Kaplan Nursing Entrance Exam Practice test for each section. This initial step is highly recommended because it provides a realistic experience of the test, helping to alleviate anxiety. Additionally, it highlights your strengths and weaknesses, giving you a clear foundation for your study plan. 

Once you have an idea of your initial scores, you can invest in credible study resources. Quizlet is not a credible resource, and plenty of students in our free Kaplan Study Group will tell you that they studied Quizlet and failed, with many students applying to programs with no retakes. Don't put yourself in that position! 

You can get the Kaplan Online Study Course and get everything you need to study in one place to make it easy.  

Once you've taken your practice test and gotten a study resource, you want to review your initial scores, decide what concepts from each test section you need to review, and plan to use the lesson on that topic within the course to study. List out all the topics you got a 60% or lower in, and list out the topics you got a 61% or better in. This will give you an idea of where to begin your studying. 

Can I use a calculator?
Yes, a 4-function calculator is allowed!

In the math section, you will be able to use a 4-function basic calculator. Please check with your school first to confirm if one will be provided to you on the screen or if they will provide you with an approved calculator. Most testing centers do not allow you to bring your own. 

How many questions are on the Kaplan Nursing Entrance Exam? Is it timed?
There are 91 questions on the Kaplan Nursing Entrance Exam.

The entire Kaplan Nursing Entrance Exam has 91 questions. The reading section has 22 questions, the writing section has 21 questions, the math section has 28 questions, and the science section has 20 questions.  

What score do I need to pass the Kaplan Entrance Exam?
Most students require at least a 70% to pass the Kaplan Nursing Entrance Exam.

The average minimum required score for most programs is 70%. However, that is the average, and your program may require a lower or higher score, so it is best to check the admissions portion of the program's website for their requirements. If it is not listed, call or email for a clear answer. 

Meeting the minimum score is not always guaranteed that you will be accepted. Sometimes, you can end up being waitlisted or rejected. It is best to try to score at least 5 to 10 points higher than the minimum required score for a higher likelihood of being accepted, and it is always a good idea to apply to multiple programs. 

Are the practice questions the same questions as on the real test?
Our practice test questions are similar, but not identical to the real exam.

Our Kaplan Nursing Entrance Exam practice tests are very similar and designed to give you a very realistic expectation of what the test will be like and how the questions will be formatted. Studying and memorizing practice questions is not recommended because there are several versions of the exam, and the exam is always changing. 

Focus on taking realistic practice tests as a guide to help you determine what you need to study and focus on before the real exam and gauge how ready you are for it. 

What are the common mistakes students make when studying for the Kaplan Nursing Entrance Exam?
These common mistakes can cause you to fail your test or get rejected from your program!

The most common mistakes we see mentioned in our Kaplan Study Group are: 

  1. Using Quizlets 
  2. Not studying for the Writing section 
  3. Not practicing using a 4-function calculator 
  4. Not applying to multiple programs 

The most common mistake would be trusting Quizlet as a quality resource. Dozens of students every month say they only used Quizlet, they memorized the material, and on test day, not a single one of the questions or concepts was on the real test, and they failed.

Most of the time, the school allows one retake, and the student won't have time to retake it in time with the mandatory waiting period and the deadline. Do not trust Quizlet! Anyone, anywhere, with an email can make a random Quizlet.

Your future depends on it, and you're paying money to take this test, use credible resources, and set yourself up for success!
