Information for Advanced Placement LPN to RN Students

Upon receiving an acceptance letter, a student should contact the Division of Nursing at 617-322-3579. Every student completes the fee-based HESI Fundamentals of Nursing examination, which is offered twice a semester. A student will need to earn a minimum score of 780 on the HESI exam to receive nine credits for NUR 1015. There will be one opportunity for a re-test. Those students who do not achieve a minimum score of 780 on the HESI examination are ineligible for advanced placement status; these students then enroll in NUR 1015 to continue the program. 

Upon successful completion of the Fundamentals of Nursing HESI exam, the student is eligible to complete the fee-based Maternity/Pediatric HESI exam. A student will have to earn a minimum score of 780 to receive eight credits for NUR 2000. There is one re-test opportunity only. In the event that the student does not achieve a minimum score of 780, the student is required to enroll in NUR 1025

Upon successful completion of the Maternity/Pediatric HESI exam, the student is eligible to enroll in NUR 1035 on a space available basis. To enroll in NUR 1035, the student has to have completed ANA 1010 and ANA 1120. Prior to starting the NUR 1035 course, students must attend the Nursing PASS Program.  

All students who are beginning their first professional Nursing course must attend the PASS program, which is their Nursing Orientation.
