Additional ranking points can be obtained for either (1) ACT/ACT Residual score of greater than 19, or (2) A defined score on a pre-nursing assessment exam. All tests scores must be less than 3 years old.
The pre-nursing assessment exam currently being used is the HESI-A2. This test consists of three sections including math, reading, and vocabulary. To receive the additional ranking points, the candidate must achieve 80% or better in each of the three sections.
Due to your potential risk for exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials, you may be at risk of acquiring Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) infection, measles, mumps, rubella, or varicella (chicken pox). Health Programs students must provide documentation of complete vaccinations or titers from their healthcare provider. For varicella, students with disease history may have their healthcare provider document date of disease.
A student may be exempt from this requirement under one of the following circumstances:
Students who provide titers with laboratory values inconsistent with immunity are encouraged to get the vaccinations.
Student must submit documentation for medical or religious contraindications.
Your name is most likely on an alternate list. If space becomes available, you will be notified by the first day of class of the semester.
Please contact a health program advisor to assist you in planning your course work to increase your chance of success next year.
Advisors are available Monday thru Friday 8:30 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
