For All Nursing Students

Some nursing courses will require students to take exams on their own laptops. The school uses a product called Examplify by ExamSoft to administer computer-based testing. Students will be notified by their teachers if they need to use Examplify to take an exam.

Use the Examplify App to Take An Exam on your Laptop

Students will be required to download the software called Examplify by ExamSoft. Using this app, students will be able to download exams to take on exam day. Students will be required to download the exam prior to coming to class on the day of the exam. The exam will only work on laptops, not smartphones, iPads, tablets, or chromebooks. Review the following information regarding ExamSoft before your exam day. For questions, contact the UH Manoa Nursing Multimedia and Instructional Design Team at
