I took the Hesi test last month. There were sections on math, reading and comprehension, vocabulary, grammar, biology, chemistry, and a&p, but there was not one for psychology. Call the school and confirm that there is a psychology portion. Hopefully you were misinformed. Good Luck!

On my entrance Hesi A2, we did not have psychology. Maybe they meant biology or physiology, but I do not think psychology. As above poster said, I would call someone and confirm-Good Luck to you:wink2:

I have never heard of psychology on the Hesi. It wasn't on mine, and I have never even seen it on any Hesi list.
