HESI A2 Testing Update

  • HESI A2 testing is available at the ACC Testing Center. However, due to the COVID 19 pandemic, there will be limited seating in order to comply with social distancing measures.
  • Applicants who are unable to take the HESI A2 exam at ACC may either try to find another testing location or contact the ACC Testing Center to receive information on Prometric Center testing using an ACC voucher. 

We’re glad you're interested in the Alvin Community College Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) or LVN-to-ADN Transition program! ACC has educated individuals to enter the nursing profession for over 50 years and our ADN program has an outstanding reputation.

Minimum Requirements for all ACC ADN programs

  • GPA = 3.0 or higher: If at the time you apply, you have grades in any courses that are part of our ADN degree, the GPA of those grades must be at least 3.0. Courses in-progress at the time you apply do NOT count in the GPA. Grades posted after the deadline will NOT count in the GPA. Grades that are not part of the ADN degree will NOT count in the GPA.
  • HESI A2 test scores = 78 or higher: You must make at least 78 for both the reading section and cumulative score. You can make less on other sections (except for reading) as long as the cumulative score is at least 78.
