HESI Admission Testing at NPC

Nursing LogoIndividuals seeking admission to Northland Pioneer College's Associate Degree Nursing Program must successfully complete the Health Education Systems, Inc. (HESI) Admission Assessment. Testing is done in January and February to allow for applications to the program prior to the February 16, 2015 4 p.m. deadline. See dates below. All test dates are subject to change.

The HESI Admission Assessment tests math; reading; vocabulary; grammar; biology; chemistry; and anatomy and physiology. All of these subjects are covered in nursing pre-requisite courses. A study guide is available through the NPC Online Bookstore, under the spring course NUR 100. Also see www.hesitest.com or www.amazon.com.

Cost for the test is $44. Payment can be made at any NPC campus or center office. A copy of the receipt must be submitted when registering for the test. Deadline is 48 hours prior to the exam date, if space permits. Cancellations must be received 48 hours prior to the test date to be eligible for a refund.
You may take Version I and Version II once per year. The results are valid for 18 months.
