The HESI A2 test is administered to students who are applicants to Nursing programs. For information about the test, go to www.uta.edu/conhi/admissions/nursing-undergrad/hesi.php

If you are applying for the UTA Nursing program, you must have applied for admission to UT Arlington prior to Fall 2017 to be able to use the HESI A2 test.  We continue to offer this test for students who may be applying to other institutions' programs that still use the HESI A2.

Is there a way I can prepare for the test?

There is an optional study manual available at the UTA Book Store, or you may review the HESI Preparation tools at: Elsevier Evolve.
