The College of Nursing requires the Admissions Assessment (HESI A2) Exam for students applying for the Traditional and Second Degree BSN tracks.
The exam results are used to determine readiness for admission to, and success in, nursing programs across the nation and are administered through Elsevier Evolve Reach testing services.Applicants are allowed to test once per application cycle.Official scores must be received by the College of Nursing by the published application deadline and must be from a recent test date; within the previous 12 months of the application deadline.Applicants who do not achieve the minimum score in any one section will be denied based on test score deficiency.There is one exception to this requirement for applicants who have not completed both A&P courses at the time of testing and do not achieve the 75 percent minimum score.Do not schedule your testing appointment until you have received a response from the Elsevier Special Accommodations Team.Typically, a response to an accommodation request is given within six (6) weeks.General The Evolve Reach Admission Assessment, also known as (HESI A2 with Critical Thinking), is the current pre-requisite for the HBU nursing program (Fall 2019).No other exam scores can be substituted to meet this requirement.These applicants may be allowed to move forward in the admissions process as long as they achieve a minimum cumulative score of 82.(Calculate this by averaging the five sections: math, anatomy and physiology, reading comprehension, grammar and vocabulary).
