Entrance Exams

Most heath professions programs require that you take a standardized test to be considered for admission. It is recommended that you study for this exam for 6 months to a year prior to sitting for the exam, depending on the test being taken. Although most programs allow you to take the exam more than once, your aim should be to take the test only one time. Do not take it just "for practice" as most health profession programs will have access to this score. There are a wealth of online resources and practice exams available to students that will allow you to test your skills.
