Nurses Still Viewed as Most Ethical Professionals

“Nurses again are No. 1 in Americans’ assessment of honesty and ethics among a range of professions, according to recent polling from Gallup.
Nurses, who have held the top spot in the poll for more than two decades, were seen as having “high” or “very high” standards by 79% of U.S. adults – down from a peak of 89% in the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic, but still considerably higher than any of the other professions included in the survey.”

Schedule Your Entry Exam

We use the Wonderlic SLE and GAIN assessments for entry into our PN program. Both assessments are created by Wonderlic Inc. and study guides for either assessment can be found by performing an internet search.

The SLE is a 12 minute assessment that measures cognitive ability. It predicts how quickly and thoroughly a student can understand instruction, learn new material and handle the mental demands of school. Cognitive ability is widely accepted as being one of the single best predictors of academic success.

The GAIN is a 90 minute assessment for learning that helps measure English and math skills of adults and teens, from basic literacy and numeracy to more advanced skills taught in secondary schools in accordance with Educational Functioning Levels (EFLs) as defined by the U.S. National Reporting System (NRS). This literacy and numeracy assessment is approved by the U.S. Department of labor for use in Workforce Investment Act (WIA), Out-of-school youth programs and by the U.S. Department of Education for use in  NRS-funded Adult Basic Education programs.
