Nursing Admission Test (NAT)
The HFC Nursing Program requires applicants to take the online Nursing Admission Test, or NAT. (HESI is an acronym for the name of the company that produces the test, Health Education Systems Incorporated.)
To register, students must log into HFC Self-Service and search the course catalog for "NAT 100." The NAT is administered at the HFC School of Nursing's computer lab and is proctored.

The HFC Learning Lab has several resources available for NAT preparation.
Students may request an individual session (HFC Portal log-in required) to review test preparation strategies and resources for the NAT.
Tutors in English and Math can assist with NAT preparation; check the Tutor Schedules for availability.
These Tutors can help with direction to handouts and resources in specific content areas. If you have already taken the exam and need assistance prior to retesting, please bring your remediation results from the previous test (see the handout "How to Access Remediation - HESI Review and Testing" for instructions on obtaining your test results). This allows the Tutors to focus on areas that need attention.
