Technological & Internet Requirements for Students in the Department of Nursing

Students are required to take exams electronically for all nursing courses.

Students enrolled in any nursing course are required to procure and maintain a fully functional iPad that meets the minimum requirements for electronic testing (see iPad Minimum Requirements below). Students must also have access to the internet to download exams prior to the exam day.

iPad Minimum Requirements

Only an iPad 5+, iPad Air, iPad Mini 2+, iPad Pro can be used. Do not use any older iPads that cannot update to iPadOS 14. No other tablets or laptops are compatible for electronic testing.
Below are the minimum system requirements to use Examplify for the iPad:

  • Operating System: iPad OS 14 (Only genuine versions of iOS are supported)
  • 500 MB MB (1 GB preferred) of free space required to commence an exam

An electronic testing orientation class will be given in the fall to orient you to the testing process, the policy/procedure, and to assist you in setting up your iPad for testing. We will inform you later of the date and time for the class.

Because students in the Department of Nursing are required to access the learning management system Canvas, develop written assignments electronically, submit assignments electronically, and have access to daily course announcements, you must have internet access outside of campus and we strongly recommend for students to have a fully functional computer.
