I was actually just browsing over the /r/teas section when I saw a post from a user asking how difficult the exams will be. They were looking for an answer to a complicated question. The question is this: What is the difference between an IRR and APR? I’ll quote the question:
APR is the Annual Percentage Rate, which represents the interest rate you would receive on your loan if you took out a loan and the loan had the exact same interest period as your original loan. In other words, APR is the Annual Percentage Rate. How hard is the exam? Well, you know if you’re planning to major in debt consolidation, then probably not too difficult. If you’re just planning to do some work in your local area with public works, then I wouldn’t worry so much about it. However, if you want to major in nursing, law or business, then it might be a little bit more challenging.
It’s actually funny because I posted that on there myself. I was thinking about what I wanted to major in, and it occurred to me that I really didn’t know what I wanted to major in. So, when I asked how hard the online RN licensing exam would be I thought that maybe I wasn’t ready to take it, but I was wrong. I got a chuckle from the person who asked me that question and a few days later I finally got around to taking it.
Now the reason I got a chuckle from the questioner is because they already knew that the Online RN Licensing Exam would be hard but not as hard as the state testing board makes it out to be. They also were very aware of the fact that the Online Licensing Exam is different than the RN licensure exam. In other words, in the case of the RN licensure exam, you have to pass both the written and nursing portions. The Online Licensing Exam is all one big test.
Now I don’t know about you, but I find that when I get ready to take a test it’s the end of the world. You’re tired, you’re stressed and your hands start to shake. The last thing I want to do is fool around with tests that are this hard! This is particularly true with the Registered Nurse (RN) test. Now, I’ll make this easier on you by letting you in on a little secret: you can take the Online Licensing Test (OLT) instead of taking the RN exam. There are several benefits to this, including the fact that the Online Licensing Test is longer.
What I mean by that is, about two and a half hours instead of the usual hour or more that the RN test requires. Furthermore, if you plan on studying hard you will have a much better time with the Online Licensing Test as opposed to the classroom setting. Why? Well, in order to study effectively you need to be in a comfortable environment, and a classroom is not exactly a comfortable environment. With the Online Licensing Test you can take from wherever you want.
One of the biggest pluses for the Online Testing is that once you’ve passed the test you do not have to take it again. If you failed the first time and you did not try again, that’s okay too, since you only have to take the test once. It also has an unlimited number of possible retakes (as long as you don’t sign up to be a member). As you can see, if you had any doubts before about the Online Licensing Exam, they should be gone after you’ve finished and started studying.
