The HESI A-2 test is used to determine admissions eligibility to CCC's Nursing Program. The test is offered in the beginning of April, with retesting in late April. The application deadline for the 2016 Nursing cohort for CCC is in May 2016.
The test is open to applicants of CCC’s nursing program or any other nursing program. Score reports are given to candidates upon completion of the test. We are happy to fax/forward your scores to other institutions upon your request. CCC students are allowed to take the exam at a different college that administers the HESI A-2 exam and attach their results to their CCC nursing application. If you have any questions about testing at a different site please contact the nursing department directly.
The online test consists of questions in anatomy & physiology, chemistry, biology, math, grammar, reading comprehension, and vocabulary. Please note that we do NOT require the physics portion of the exam. Candidates should allow around 5 hours to complete the entire exam.
