The Health Education Systems, Inc. (HESI) A2 Admission Assessment is a timed, computerized test that consists of:
HESI A2 Admission Assessment exam scores are weighted at 50%. A minimum 75% score is required in Biology, Anatomy & Physiology, Grammar, Math, Reading Comprehension, and Vocabulary. The Learning Styles and Personality Inventory sections are not scored.
GPA is weighted at 50%. Grades from coursework taken toward the AAS-Nursing degree will be used in the computation of the GPA. The pre-requisite Biology courses may be taken a maximum of two (2) times within the previous five (5) years. The highest grade of the first two times will then be used to calculate both overall and science GPA.
An average score for the HESI A2 Admission Assessment exam will be calculated. The average percent score will be divided by the number 25. GPA will be calculated on a 4.0 scale. (Example: a student who scored an average of 85% on all administered tests would receive 3.4. Adding the overall GPA of 3.4 would calculate to 6.8 points.)
Students will be ranked by descending order, admission being offered to those ranking higher first.
All available openings will be offered to Nevada residents first. Note: all students to whom the Good Neighbor policy (eliminated in fall 2011) continues to apply will be grandfathered, so long as they are continuously enrolled in a NSHE institution.
