Answer:

Most schools will require an entrance exam for admittance, whether attending a Licensed Practical Nurse or Registered Nurse program. There are two most commonly used tests; the HESI A2 & TEAS 6 exam.

The HESI A2 exam, also often referred to as the Evolve HESI Admission Assessment (A2) Exam, consists of 326 multiple choice questions that take approximately 4 hours. This exam consists of nine different academic topics such as Anatomy & Physiology, Basic Math, Biology, Chemistry, Grammar, Physics, Reading Comprehension, Vocabulary, and General Knowledge. It also has a personality profile and learning style piece as a component.

The TEAS 6 exam called the Test of Essential Academic Skills consists of 170 multiple choice questions that take approximately 3.5 hours. This exam consists of 4 different academic topics such as Reading, Math, Science, English, and Language Usage.

Both comprehensive exams are not a pass or fail type test. The individual score is a percentage of all tests combined in addition to the particular percentage of content-specific title exams. Each school will determine which type of test to use and its set score for admittance into the nursing program.
