    See, I think it's well and fine if we knew we had to pass in order to graduate since day 1, but for 3 semesters now we were told it's just practice. It really should start with a 1st semester class...not 4th semester students who had no idea. Most of us didn't pass it the first time, we take it again on Monday, I'll cross my fingers.

    We take one in each of our core classes, and they're worth 20-40% of our grade. Then we take the exit HESI to graduate, and we do get 3 chances to pass that one. The only reason for them is to keep NCLEX pass rates high so the school looks better.

    we're taking a HESI exam as a final now, first semester. it's worth 100 points (our other two tests were 50 points each) & if our test averages aren't passing, then we don't pass the class. they haven't told us anything so far about passing the HESI to graduate, though.

    good luck today!!

    We take the HESI next Tuesday. We have to get a 900 on it. If we don't make the 900, we have to take another review before they will release our final transcripts to us.

    USF, right? Nope, you only get 2 chances now.
