Motlow State offers LPN to RN applicants opportunity to take HESI Fundamental exam twice

The Motlow State Community College Testing Center will be offering LPN-RN program applicants the opportunity to take the Health Education Systems Incorporated (HESI) Fundamental Entrance exam more than one time in early 2018.

Because of LPN-RN applicant requests for a second testing opportunity, applicants can now take the HESI Fundamental exam in February, only on the Moore County campus, and again in March if they choose, when it will then be offered on all campuses; the Moore County, Fayetteville, McMinnville and Smyrna campuses. This is the first year the Testing Center has offered an LPN-RN applicant the opportunity to take the exam two times.

“We are excited to be able to offer prospective LPN-RN nursing students the opportunity to take the HESI Fundamental Entrance exam more than once during the spring,” said Pat Hendrix, dean of allied health at Motlow State, “in hopes of helping them to improve their chances of meeting the admission standards.”

The HESI Fundamental exam is the admission assessment for Motlow’s LPN-RN nursing program; program candidates must take the HESI Fundamental examination and achieve a minimum score of 850. Scores will be available at the end of the exam, and are valid for two years.

Registration to take the test(s) must be completed by the deadline of Jan. 31, at 4: 30 p.m. CST, and the non-refundable payment for each test is due at the time of registration. For more information, and to register go to
