Wonderlic and Nursing

Almost all nursing programs in the U.S. require applicants to take a Wonderlic test as part of the application process. Some of the programs use the Wonderlic SLE (Scholastic Level Exam) while others use the WBST (Wonderlic Basic Skills Test). The required minimum scores vary among the institutions and specific nursing programs. When applying to the programs of your choice, check with the relevant institutions which Wonderlic exam you will be required to take, so that you can prepare properly.


Different Nursing Programs

The Wonderlic test is part of the application process when applying to certain nursing programs. Programs to become a Certified Nursing Assitant (CNA), Licensed Practical Nurse/Licensed Vocational Nurse (LPN/LVN), as well as Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) (or Associate Degree in Nursing, ADN) programs often require the Wonderlic.


How are these types of nurses different?

A Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) assists disabled individuals with health care needs and provide bedside care under the supervision of an LPN/LVN or RN. The title Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) or Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN) varies according to state. The scope of practice for LPN/LVNs also varies by state and is outlined in each state’s Nurse Practice Act. Generally, a Registered Nurse (RN) assesses the patient, plans patient care, and evaluates effectiveness of plan, while the LPN/LVN implements the care plan developed by the RN. An ASN/ADN may take the necessary steps to become an RN, while an LPN is limited and must further his/her education in order to become an RN.
