HESI Admissions Assessment Exam Information
Admission to the Practical Nursing Program is highly competitive, and only a select number of students are enrolled to each class. To qualify, an applicant must meet the minimum requirements of the HESI Admissions Assessment Exam.
The HESI test is given at regular intervals. Applicants will be scheduled for the test following the information session.
Achieving the minimum scores on the exam does not guarantee admission. Admission to the nursing program is based on scores on the entrance exam. Applicants must have a completed application to be considered for admission.
For more information regarding the practical nursing program, please contact Stephanie Murphy, Health Careers Coordinator, at 615-441-6220 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
