nursing tests

As part of the application process to become a qualified nurse, trainee nurses often take psychometric tests to ensure they have the skills and capabilities required to take on the challenging but rewarding work of nursing. Situational judgement, numerical reasoning and verbal reasoning are the most common aptitude tests used.

After using the platform for two weeks, I’ve never felt more prepared for an Aptitude test.

What do nursing recruiters look for?

Nursing recruiters want to find nurses who are calm, professional and caring. Proving you’re a team player, and that you have the ability to be flexible and think on your feet, will also be important when it comes to the interview process.

What are the most common nursing interview questions?

It’s likely you’ll be asked questions such as: why do you want to be a nurse? What makes a good nurse? How do you handle pressure?

Make sure you’ve thought about answers to these questions, and a few more, before you go into the interview.

How long does it take to become a nurse?

The average length of time is three to four years. There’s a lot of learning and training to do.

How do I prepare for a nursing aptitude test?

There really is no substitute for practice. Do as many mock tests as you can and make sure you go back over each one to assess where your strengths and weaknesses lie, so you know which areas you need to work harder on.

    Its important to know the answers

    I think the test was rather different from other tests but on the other hand, it was quite relieving to know what I'll go through in the future

    I was unfamiliar with stats and financial maths and didn't expect it to come up in a test for nursing

    I have a long way to go in order to catch up

    I like the fact that it's mathematics so all problems can be solved. My dislike is in the technicality of the questions and the short time allotted. Wish to be tutored 🙏

    Only full of graphs that needed a lot of time to comprehend, but ironically, time allotted to the whole test is extra small.

    Know your way around graphs and your calculator

    Liked the way they asked the questions but did not like how the graphs changed almost every time you touch them, taking you to the previous graph. It confused me.

    I liked it because I have a clue on what it will be like to take the aptitude test. Never thought of any dislikes.

    It's okay, but at the same time it's quite nerve-wracking. You need to pump your brain a lot to find the best answer within 20 minutes.

  • Philippines

    The most important of this test is you need to apply everyday mathematics

    I like everything that you put in this test and you have solutions to practice on how to compute the right way. So, I like it.

    Keep track of time and be very quick

    Long questions that require a lot of understanding with limited time; the questions are complex. It's very challenging, which is needed in nursing.

    Complex questions

    I couldn't decipher most of the questions, they are complex. Apart from that, its quite an awesome test. Maybe I'll take them once in a while to boost my cerebrum.
