ENTRANCE EXAM FOR NURSING AND HEALTH SCIENCES PROGRAMS
All students applying to the Nursing or Health Sciences programs must take the HESI Admission Assessment (A2) exam. No exemptions or substitutions are permitted. The HESI A2 can be taken twice in an academic year. The exam is timed and is computerized. The program sheet for your major includes more detailed information about required scores. Test dates and registration information is detailed below.
WHEN TO TAKE THE EXAM
Students typically take the HESI A2 during the fall semester immediately prior to applying to their program of choice. Students should have completed English, Math and Science prerequisites, or be currently enrolled in those courses, before taking the HESI A2. Discuss your readiness with your academic advisor or, if applying to Nursing, the Nursing Stage I coordinator.
Study guides for the HESI A2 Admission Assessment exam are available in the Sandhills bookstore and Boyd Library.
