Pre Admission eXam (PAX)

Students may take the test only once per application period, and their test score must reach at least the 58% percentile on the conversion chart to be eligible for the program. Students who register for more than one testing date will not be admitted for a second attempt.  For questions, please contact the HPSC.

Registration Guide  

Testing dates will not be offered during the Winter Quarter. If you logon to the NLN site and one of the tests listed below does not display, this means that testing date is full. The doors will be locked and no one will be allowed into the testing room after 10:15, so come early parking may be difficult. Contact the Center for Disability Services at 425-388-9272 if you need testing accommodations.

Immunization and Background Requirements

All applicants must create an immunization account and complete a background check through our online system with American DataBank (ADB). The immunization section is called Complio. Your immunization account is good for one year, for a cost of $15. You will need to select the "Pre-admission ADN Applicant" option when creating both your immunization and National Background accounts. The background check starts at $55 and can go up if you have lived in several counties or states. The background check portion of the account is good for six months from the date of completion. If it expires on or before the application cycle deadline, it must be renewed, or it will keep a student's application from being considered for that application period.

Your application must be completely compliant with the standards on the clinical passport at the time of submission in order for you to be considered for the Nursing Program for that quarter. Please read about the Hepatitis B immunizations and testing as this process can take up to eight months to complete. Also review the tuberculosis requirements before visiting your healthcare provider for this test.

Point System  and Calculating GPA 

This system gives students a more diversified way to earn admittance into the program. While your test scores are still a factor, you now have other opportunities to earn points, from prerequisite GPA totals, work experience or licensure in the healthcare industry, and other educational degrees earned above an Associate's Degree.

Criminal History Disclosure Form 

Please note that this form is not the same as the criminal background check. It must be completed by all applicants and uploaded as part of their application.

Employment Verification Form 

Please note that we will not accept an Employment Verification Form if the corresponding licensure has not been submitted as well.
