Step 4

Take the Entrance Exams (HESI)

Applicants must achieve a passing score on the Nursing Admissions Test. This test is a pre-admission assessment to determine whether a student has the necessary academic skills to perform effectively in a school of nursing. Designed for students with a high- school education (or equivalent), the multiple-choice test is nursing-content focused and tests basic reading comprehension, vocabulary, learning styles and personality profile:

  • Testing locations are set up in NB (by the provincial government) to administer the proctored exams to applicants. Applicants will register with Beal University Canada for the exam ($50.00 CAN – Pay Here). Priority consideration will be given to applicants who earn a score of 75% or higher on reading comprehension and vocabulary (learning styles and personality profile sections are not graded). The exam may be taken 3 times only in one year, with a waiting period of 3 weeks between exam attempts. Performance results are valid for 1 year.
  • Applicants must submit official high school transcripts and/or college/university transcripts that show a cumulative (overall) grade point average of 2.5 or a C average.
  • Applicants are required to provide proof of immunizations and successfully pass background checks prior to beginning program clinicals.
  • Register for your HESI here.

 

Step 5:

Submit your immunization records

Before entering nursing courses, all BScN applicants are required to furnish evidence of immunization against the below-specified requirements. Failure to provide a completed checklist of immunizations will result in students being unable to attend clinical placements.

  • Tetanus and diphtheria (Td, DTaP, etc.) administered within the last 5 years
  • Red measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR)-provide two MMR vaccinations or laboratory evidence of immune antibodies to MMR
  • Varicella-two doses of varicella vaccine OR serological evidence of immune antibodies
  • Hepatitis B immunity
  • Tuberculosis (TB) screening-two step method tuberculin skin test completed once. For those who test with positive TB, a chest X-ray is required
  • Influenza (flu shot)- strongly recommended yearly. Those not up to date will have to follow strict risk mitigation measures
  • Covid-19- strongly recommended. Those not up to date will have to follow strict risk mitigation measures

Official documentation must include immunizing agent, dosage, date on which immunization was administered and the signature of the administering official. Proof may also include an official stamp of medical or public health facility or proof of immunization printed on medical or public health facility’s letterhead.

In certain cases where immunization is medically inadvisable, a written statement from the applicant’s health provider may exempt the applicant from receiving immunizations.

 

Step 6

  1. Prior to attending NU110 Introduction to Foundational Nursing Concepts, applicants must have obtained a current CPR & First Aid Certification.
