The nursing department will use your HESI-A2 results for your admissions ranking.  This exam cannot hurt your chances for admissions, but can only help add points to your ranking score.  If student scores above a 90% on the Math, Reading and Vocabulary sections, that student will receive bonus-ranking points.

Students are allowed to take the nursing entrance exam only once per application period.

Please allow four hours for the exam. Test results are available immediately. The cost of the exam will range from $50.   Day, evening, and weekend testing hours are available October 1, 2017 - February 28, 2017.
