    I took the HESI twice. The first was a specialty examine focused on Med Surg and Pedi, I scored 99.99% for a total of only 4 questions wrong. On the HESI exit exam I scored a 95%. For both exams I used the HESI book and cd. It is an incredibly valuable tool not just for HESI but for class exams. Everything is laid out and all critical points are highlighted in gray boxes thruout the text. Don't get too discouraged if you dont acheive a high score on the HESI practice cd. When I practiced I never got above a 78%!! Good Luck!

    Yes it was required as an exit exam for our school.Any specific questions about it? It is true the NCLEX questions are not as straight forward.Critical thinking, prioritizing questions. If you havent taken the HESI yet, read from front to back the HESI book. This book can also help you study for the NCLEX exam.

    We were able to get the book by going to a major book store in the medical center of Houston, Texas (Majors, is the name). Some other students ordered it from a ecampus (I think) and paid for overnight shipping. It is a good book, however, I have not taken my exit HESI ,yet, and I am scared out of my mind. We only get three attempts, have to make an 850.

    I have been studying the HESI book and doing tests on the CD, and my scores have been between 66 to 85... I am FREAKED. My exam is on the 4th, please, please, (I know you don't know me) pray for me, keep me in your thoughts... I need to pass this test.

    You can do it. Just try not to freak out over it, that was my problem.
    Not only study the HESI book, know it!!! including the HESI hints. It will make all the difference. Try to break up your reading time to do questions.
    We need a 900, here were my scores: 721, 835, 859, 997.
    My school did little to prepare us and we didn't see any form a real hesi exam until a week before graduation.
    Adv clinical concepts (Cardioversion vs D-Fib), leadership, OB & Med-Surg (resp & cardiac) are worth a lot of points.

    I will keep you in my prayers.

    Thank you so much for the information. You were able to take the test four times? We can't do that here... but our score has to be an 850, so I guess I am lucky in that aspect.

    I just noticed that you are from Chicago.... man, am I JEALOUS!!! We plan to move to Chicago within the next couple of years. I am actually coming to Chicago with my hubby and child for New Year's Eve... we just LOVE it there.

    Thanks again,

    Yeah, I was born and raised here and I love it. There is always fun things to do here. I think about relocating to places like Dallas & Las Vegas though.

    Best wishes on your HESI exam!

    I agree. For a fee we had to have a 6 week pass/fail remediation course with our nursing instructors in order to take HESI one more time - we all passed.
    BUT............ when we took HESI 90% of us failed!!!!!!!!!
    So who is at fault the students or the faculty???????????
    NOW WE HAVE NO NURSING DEGREE.
    Four years, $30.000 spent on education, a professional picture of me in my nurse uniform and cap, memories of walking on stage with my caps, gowns, and my families there to witness my special event.
    HESI was not even mentioned in our student hand book, or the consequences that was involved.

    I am one of those individuals who have taken HESI twice and have not passed. As a consequence I will not be able to graduate this December and have to take another course that is geared toward passing HESI. I only have one more chance and I must pass in order to get my degree. I try not to be down on myself but it's a daily struggle for me. I've done fine throughout my entire program. I still have to get through this semester. I'm finding strength in me that I didn't know that I had. I know this strength is coming from my heavenly father. If anyone could share some strategies with me in order to be SUCCESSFUL on this last attempt I would greatly appreciate it. Keep me in prayer.
