HESI A2

The School of Nursing and Health Sciences utilizes the HESI Admission Assessment (A2) as a tool to assess the readiness of prospective nursing students for both the Generic and One Year Registered Nurse program tracks. Detailed information about the exam content and score requirements can be found by clicking here.

The HESI A2 should be taken the semester before your planned entry date into the nursing program as the exam scores are valid for one year. Please plan accordingly as seating is limited and dates fill quickly.
