Contact NLN Student Support

NLN staff understand the needs of nursing faculty and students. Our team of professionals includes relationship managers, school specialists, and a curriculum and testing specialist; all are committed to providing quality services and products to customers.


Generations of nurses have prepared for their careers using NLN exams and services. From pre-admission through assessment of nurses in practice settings, NLN Assessment Services continues to meet the needs of customers. And profits are reinvested into NLN products and services that promote excellence in nursing education.


We are committed to maintaining the integrity of our exams in the test development process. The NLN Center for Assessment and Evaluation follows the gold standards in testing published by the American Educational Research Association, American Psychological Association, and the National Council on Measurements in Education. The NLN's Fair Testing Guidelines is supported by NLN Assessment Services.


The NLN values inclusivity. Within test development, a diverse group of expert nurse educators serve as test item writers, test item reviewers, and on a fair testing committee to ensure that diversity is integrated in testing products. Our approach solicits input from individuals representing various ethnic, racial, cultural, and gender groups; geographic locations; and all types of nursing programs.
