​Take the HESI A2™ Exam

Students applying to the Nursing program are required to ta​​ke the Health Education Systems, Inc., Admissions Assessment (HESI A2™). The HESI A2™ study guide is available on reserve from the Brookhaven Library, or you may purchase a cop​y through the bookstore. More information is available at www.hesitest.co​m.

  • Required sections are: Reading, Grammar, Vocabulary, Math and Anatomy & Physiology.
  • HESI A2™ scores are only valid for two years.
  • The HESI A2™ exam can be taken only once per application period, in February or September. If you take the HESI A2™ exam more than once per application period, your application will be disqualified.
