Are you 23 or over?
Is it your dream to become a nurse in Ireland?
The above course could be the first step in achieving this dream.
Better still, you can complete it without leaving your home.
If you are 23 or over and interested in a career in nursing in Ireland, you will know that the mature route into nursing involves sitting a computer based assessment sometime during the months of March to May, consisting of three aptitude tests. Only those applicants who achieve above a certain score in this assessment will be considered for an offer as a mature code applicant. Unless there is a considerable amount of preparation done for these tests, most candidates would have little chance of achieving the required score. While preparation from books will help to a certain extent, a preparation course where students are provided with relevant sample questions and guided to complete them with speed and accuracy can be much more effective.
Some features of this online course:
- A high percentage of students who complete the course achieve a third level place in nursing or midwifery each year.
- This is the only course available which provides computer based tests which can be completed at any time and in any place where WiFi is available and receive immediate feedback on the results.
- The course consists of 9 videos, 26 practice tests and 14 downloadable documents.
- All tests are computer based. Immediately, on clicking Submit, the following information will be provided for each question in that test – whether each answer is correct or incorrect, the correct answer and an explanation as to why it is the correct answer, allowing the learner to see their mistake if they got it wrong.
- Learners can repeat each test as often as they wish, each time receiving the above feedback. This will allow learners to become proficient in this method of assessment.
- All learners will be provided with the tutor’s contact details and are encouraged to ring, text or e-mail her if they have any questions.
- This format cuts out the cost and inconvenience of travelling to a particular venue.
- It also provides the convenience of completing the tests at the most suitable times for the learner.
- You can complete the tests on a PC, laptop, tablet or mobile phone.
- When you pay for the course online, it may take up to 2 days to receive the material.
The course costs €75 in total which includes all the tests, answers etc, as described above, the guiding videos and access to the tutor for clarification of anything required.

The Mature Nursing Entry Assessment 2022
This was an online assessment involving remote proctoring (online monitoring). It took place between 5 and 12 May and each candidate could choose the most suitable time for them to complete it. There were three sections in the assessment – Understanding Basic Instructions, Basic Numerical Comprehension and Job Simulation. The assessment in 2023 is expected to be similar.
The Mature Nursing Entry assessment 2023
This will take place in May 2023 (subject to change, according to NMBI) and will be an online assessment with remote proctoring (online monitoring). There is no detailed information yet in relation to the actual assessment, but it has always consisted of three tests, which can be classified under the general headings literacy, numeracy and job simulation. Literacy can also be referred to as Verbal Reasoning or Understanding Basic Instructions.
In order to provide the best preparation for the 2023 assessment, 26 practice tests are provided on this course – 7 Verbal Reasoning, 3 Numerical Ability, 6 Numerical Reasoning, 5 Basic Numerical Comprehension and 5 Job Simulation. Basic Numerical Comprehension was the format of numerical test used in 2021 and 2022, but there is no guarantee that this will be the format in 2023. Some Numerical Ability and Numerical Reasoning tests have been provided since these formats formed part of the assessment in previous years and could again in the future. it is even possible that a new format may be introduced. If this happens, additional information will be posted to anyone who has purchased this course.
Here is a summary of the material covered in the Practice Tests
Verbal Reasoning – examines an applicant’s verbal proficiency and their ability to glean specific information from a wide source of materials.
Numerical Ability – explores the learner’s ability to manipulate numbers and carry out simple arithmetical calculations.
Numerical Reasoning – investigates the candidate’s ability to find relevant information from passages, graphs, charts and tables involving numerical data, manipulate numbers and carry out arithmetical calculations.
Basic Numerical Comprehension – involves tests where an unknown value or values are calculated from equations.
Test 3 – Job Simulation Exercise: This exercise presents the applicant with a number of scenarios of typical situations that could occur during the course of a nurse’s working life. The candidate has to read these scenarios and answer a number of questions relating to them. The aim of this part of the assessment is to gauge whether the applicant has the required qualities to make a good nurse or midwife.
THIS COURSE CONSISTS OF:-
- 26 Computer Based Tests – 7 Verbal Reasoning, 3 Numerical Ability, 6 Numerical Reasoning, 5 Basic Numerical Comprehension and 5 Job Simulation
- 9 Videos – these explain how to do the tests and give tips on how to improve speed and accuracy.
