Chatham University

PSB Nursing School Aptitude Examination Preparatory Course

The UPMC Schools of Nursing utilize the Psychological Services Bureau (PSB) Nursing School Aptitude Examination as a tool to measure your readiness for success in nursing school.

Chatham has developed an online preparation course to help you improve your math, natural sciences, or reading and vocabulary scores on the Entrance Exam. The course is available to students who have previously taken the PSB or students who would like to prepare before taking the exam for the first time.

The UPMC Schools of Nursing require a score of 80% or higher on the exam in order to be considered for admission.

Course Structure

The online course is 5 weeks long. Once registered, students will receive a Chatham University technology account which will enable you to access the course. Chatham online courses are asynchronous, meaning they operate in a 24/7 environment. Topics will address preparation for the exam and a refresher on content that will be covered on the exam.


Cost: $199
