What is the HESI A2?

The HESI A2© (also known as the Evolve Reach Admissions Assessment) is a common nursing school entrance exam.

What subjects are on the HESI exam?

The HESI A2© consists of 8 separate test areas. Those test areas include mathematicsreading comprehensionvocabularygrammarbiologychemistryanatomy & physiology, and physics. The school you are applying to will tell you which of these 8 test areas you will need to take.

Almost all programs will require you to take the math, reading, vocabulary, and grammar parts of the test. In addition, some school may require you to take the biology and anatomy sections. It is rare that a school will ask you to take chemistry or physics.

How many questions are on each section?

Here is a breakdown of the number of questions you will face on each section of the HESI exam:

  • Mathematics (50 questions, 50 minutes)
  • Reading Comprehension (47 questions, 60 minutes)
  • Vocabulary (50 questions, 50 minutes)
  • Grammar (50 questions, 50 minutes)
  • Biology (25 questions, 25 minutes)
  • Chemistry (25 questions, 25 minutes)
  • Anatomy & Physiology (25 questions, 25 minutes)
  • Physics (25 questions, 25 minutes)

Is it multiple choice?

It is multiple choice except for a couple of math problems which will be fill-in-the-blank.

How much does the HESI exam cost?

The cost to sit for the exam is $40.00.

Where do I take the test?

The program’s admissions counselor will work with you to schedule your exam at a Prometric testing center near you. You will take the exam on a computer and it will be proctored (someone will be there to watch you take it).

What is a passing score?

The program you are applying to has a pre-determined passing score. However, most programs require a 70% – 80% on each test section.

What happens if I don’t pass my exam?

You can take the test once every 60 days but only three times in a year. After three times in one year, you will have to wait until the next year to sit for the exam again.

    In 2017, I bought an online Hesi A2. Not from Nurse Hub. And it seems that my name has been under such account, I could not buy the new version now. Please help me buy in a new account.

  2. Hello all,
    I’m scheduled to take my HESI A2 next Wednesday. I’m only taking the Math and A&P portions because I’ve passed all of the other subjects with high scores—using NurseHub. Any tips on passing on the 2nd try? I just want to get into this accelerated program this September.

    Thanks in advance everyone?

  3. I took hesi and prepped through nurse hub. I scored 94% in mathematics, and 89.33% in English. Will be retaking to bring up my English score. I love my lifetime membership to nurse just=ub. If I can score this high my first time anyone can pass. I love nurse hub

  4. I am trying to go to nursing school and I will be taking an HESZI A2 and I don’t have nothing I can on off

  5. Hello, I am taking the HESI A2 next Thursday. I’m hoping to enroll in the transitional nursing(LVN-RN) program in August. Wish me luck!!!

  6. I am taking the HESI also the end of May this year, I am trying to study just the main subjects and hope to score at least a 900? I hope so

  7. Hello everyone,
    I have taken the Hesi A2 exam, and used this as a study guide. I have passed. This study guide is very similar to the actual Hesi exam.

      1. The availability of the on-screen calculator is dependent on the school to which you’re applying. We recommend checking directly with them for the most accurate information about whether or not you’ll have access to.

  8. NURSEHUB is definitively the way to go when it comes for the nursing or the dental program. I am going for dental and had to take the HESI exam. It was very helpful with grammar, math, and reading. I was so happy I passed(: Not only did I pass, but I can still use this as a resource and it’s really great.
