HESI A2 Test
Many nursing programs require applicants to take the HESI A2 exam as part of the admissions process. Its actual title is Evolve Admissions Assessment with Critical Thinking examination, but most people and institutions use the shorthand version, or they simply call it the Admissions Assessment.
The first eight measure knowledge in each particular subject, while the other three are aptitude tests that are designed to determine if the nursing school applicant has the personality and temperament to successfully complete an education in nursing and be successful in their chosen career. Taking the entire test battery would take over six hours, but most nursing programs don’t require applicants to take all of the test components; each school decides for itself which parts of the test they’ll require applicants to take.
Schools also set their own standards when it comes to what constitutes a good score on the HESI A2, so there is no official passing or failing score. Schools also determine retake policy for themselves. A few nursing programs are quite lenient, and allow multiple retakes. However, most nursing schools are pretty strict in this regard. Many will allow applicants to retake the exam only once in a 12 month period, and usually after waiting between 3-30 days. The best approach to the HESI A2 is to be thoroughly prepared the first time you take the exam.
