The Effect of an Exercise Intervention on Nursing Test Anxiety
Amy Nagorski Johnson PhD RNC-NIC-E*
Nursing students plan to pass the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) on the first attempt after graduating from their nursing program. Although students learn study skills and how to review and retain essential materials throughout their nursing education, test outcomes vary markedly between students.

The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of power walking as an exercise intervention to manage testing anxiety in one nursing classroom.
