New Policy as of April 1, 2015

Individuals wishing to apply to PNC's Nursing Program may take the HESI A-2 Admissions Exam no more than twice within a rolling calendar year.  For example, if a person were to test on 5/21/15 and 6/10/15 without successfully passing both sections of the exam, they would be required to wait until 5/21/16 before attempting to take that HESI A-2 Admission Examination again. Questions regarding this policy should be directed to Dr. Diane Spoljoric, Department Chair of PNC's Nursing Department. She can be contacted at (219) 785-5388 or dspoljoric@pnc.edu.

Disability Accommodations:

Persons with disabilities requiring accommodations should contact Cassandra Boehlke, coordinator of Graduate and Extended Learning, at (219) 785-5748 at least two weeks before the testing date which the student wishes to register for.


All fees are non-refundable and non-transferable, meaning that a person will have to pay their applicable fee again if they decide to switch testing dates. Individuals should wait to pay their fee until after they have scheduled their testing date and know it will not be changing.
