Has anyone taken the HESI FNP exam?

  1. 0
    Hi, my school is making us take the HESI FNP exam before we graduate and I am wondering if anyone here had to do the same. I took the HESI exam at the end of my RN program and I remember it being extremely hard...harder than the boards in my opinion. I have gone to the HESI website but I am not really finding anything info for FNPs. If you have taken it, what did you do to prepare and how was the exam? We have to have a 900 on the exam. Im not even sure what the 900 is out of, ya know? Any help would be much appreciated

    I took it last month. It is modeled after the ANCC exam. You pretty much have to follow their test outline. I studied Amelie, Leik, and systems review. I did not follow the ANCC outline because I am taking the AANP. My school recommends their outline for HESI. You can inbox me.

    It really wasnt that hard. It is very much like the AANP boards so if you taket those boards, that test really does compare. I studied from Amelie Hollier's study guide and question book. Its all stuff you know on the exam. I breezed through it. Besst wishes

    It wasnt that bad. Very vague questions. I was able to pick the answers out fine. I think it was mostly clinical stuff. Only a few policy questions on there. I think I remember some musculosketal questions like Osgood shaulter (spelling), OP, OA, LBP, some peds well child mild stone type questions. I think the question were similar to the review books . The one written by the lady with the last name Z, lol sorry I can remember the books name but its the review book for family nurse practitioners. Look at Leik too. Its not that hard of an exam. I breezed through. Good luck. Do you graduate in Dec? You will soon be in the wonderful world of clinical decision making like Mercedes and I..
