HESI Exam Registration Policies & Procedures for Nursing Program


Testing Schedule

Students taking the HESI admissions exam for entrance into the SFCC Nursing Program are allowed to test twice in an application period. Each testing date has an automatic retest date of 20-30 business days following the original test date.  That is, you have an opportunity to choose whether you want to retest 20-30 business days after your first attempt.  Please be sure that, when you select your preferred test date, you will be available for the retest date as well, should it become necessary. The initial attempt is scheduled for January 4-8 with the second attempt scheduled for February 8-12.

Santa Fe Community College has arranged with Elsevier to administer the HESI A2 Admission Exam through a remote proctoring service. This is in response to the current COVID pandemic. This will allow students to self-schedule their exams. The remote proctoring also allows us to host an unlimited number of students during any given testing period.
