The Kaplan Nursing School Admissions Test is a pre-admission assessment that predicts a student’s nursing school success. Because the first step in any successful nursing program is selecting the correct students, a test that determines student aptitude is essential.

Designed for students with a high-school education (or equivalent), students are not required to have taken any previous nursing course to be successful on the admissions test.
