    Fitzgerald really didnt help me with the Hesi. But it did help me with the AANP boards. Review Leik. That book is like a caught all. Let me know how you do on it

    Im taking the FNP HESI in a week and I purchased the Leik book but was very disappointed. Its riddled with incorrect information, incorrect answers in the test questions, grammatical/spelling errors, incorrect drug brand/generic name combos, etc. I had to stop reading it because Im afraid that Ill mistake an error for something that is factual and it will lead me in the wrong direction on a test and in future practice.

    Steer clear of this one!

    Manhow...sorry about the boards..I am just now seeing this. Did you pass yet?? FutureNP87, the Hesi was not that bad. really. A few ethical/research type of questions and all the rest were clinical. It was all things I learned in school. Leik is very helpful and Fitzgerald. Know the pediatric xanthems and how to catch up immunizations in kids for sure. Know the USTask force recommendations for health prevention and screening. Other than that study the usual suspects...dosing insulin, Thyroid disease, HTN, Dyslipidemia, OP, OA

    Hello! I am planning to take the HESI in November (grad in Dec). Was it effective in teazing out areas of weaknesses, and would you say it was comparable to the certification exam ( a mini version)?
    In other words, if you do well on the HESI , is it likely to do equally well on the national NP certification exam? Thank you very much and congrats on passing.

    How are the questions? I seen some samples and there are a lot of negative, EXCEPT, but, the least of.... which are confusing for me, also ALL THAT APPLY... with many boxes, so if you miss one, ALL the question is wrong.

    Is this kind of question in the real HESI FNP test?
