    I dont understand why no other school will take you. Your Med Surg 1 and 2 should be transferrable to another nurding program and you should only have to take your last semester. there is no reason you should have to start from scratch, you only "failed" the last part.

    Fight for it!

    good luck!

    In Alabama, the old nursing school curriculums were handled by each school individually. Each school had their own curriculum approved by the state board. There was no uniformity, and thus, little transferability as school's claimed "it's not equivalent". The new curriculum (of which the first graduates will be the May '07 class) is standardized by the state board to utilize the same materials, the same class objectives, etc. The new curriculum should be more readily transferable statewide.

    Personally, I believe a remedial course should be available after failing to achieve the mandatory grade on the HESI. After the remedial course has been successfully completed, the student should be allowed to take the HESI again.

    This situation did not occur to me personally. Although, I am 90% certain that I know you. dansamy is my internet forum userID. My name is Amelia.

    My belief is that you and your classmates should file a grievance. I know remediation was required if a student failed the mid-curricular. To not offer remediation post-exit HESI runs counter to what we'd already experienced with the mid-curricular exam.

    i took the hesi-rn as an exit exam today. it sucked. we had to pass it to sit for the nclex--our pinning is on the 8th. most of us passed, but it was full of bizarre questions. really, really weird. saunders helped a lot. now, if it IS true that it has some bearing of predicting passing the nclex, i'm good to go.

    It was a pain. I think somewhere around the hour mark, I started micro-sleeping. It was sooooo cold in our computer lab. I'm amazed I got a 1057 on it since I was so uncomfortable (read: frigging freezing!!!) during the exam.

    The HESI was one of my worst nightmare. My school required that we passed with a score above and 85 or 850. We has three tries. The first time, I missed it by 3 points of 820 (82). the second time, I made 880 (88).

    Study your saunders nclex rn book NOT THE HESI BOOK! Do as many review questions as possible.

    Why not the hesi book? I have to take the Hesi in a month. I have been using the book and cd. I find the practice tests to be really hard. I am soooooo nervous. Any more suggestions would be appreciated!

    Hello All,

    I actually took the HESII exam today as an entrance exam into an RN program. We were told by the school that we would receive results but not to dwell on them because the school will decide what they consider to be passing based upon the class average. When I reviewed the exam I saw that the class average was an 80. I did extremely bad because I got a 74.46%. I attribute that to working the night shift 11pm-7am and went going to the school for 8:30am only to find out that we had to take 2 more exams before the nursing (HESII). So I did all that on no sleep at all and by the time we took the HESII it was already nearing 2:30pm and I was literally seeing sheep and fences (lol) halfway through the test. Now I'm like I should have never done that because I could have potentially ruined my chances of getting in for this semester.

    i have now taken the hesi 4 times and now have one last chance and that is to be decided. i have studied the hesi book and the cd and still no luck, i have gone to a review given at the nursing school that i attend. i know it sounds bad but i am not the only one in our graduated class that still hasn't passed this test. there are about 30 and now we are told that we get one more chance. we have to have an 850 to pass and the last two times i got 824 and 829. does anyone have any suggestions on what to study and how. i know that i am running out of steam and time to take this test and stressing out has not seemed to help. any advise would be helpful.

    my advice to you would be to study your saunders rn book. hesi no longer uses the hesi book to make up the hesi exam. if you long on to the hesi web site it tells you that it uses 47 books to make up the test and not one of them is the hesi book. when hesi was purchased by evolve in january of 2006 they no longer used the hesi book. keep your head up girl , think positive and study the hell out of your saunders book and in the mean time i will be praying for you and your class mates.
