First half of class will be the Exam. Your exam is online and will begin at 1015. You have 60 minutes to complete the exam. You can access the exam through CI Learn>>Nursing 420>>Exams. You will immediately receive your score, but you will not be able to review the exam until after 1200, so everyone has time to complete the exam.
