    Well I just took the HESI today and the Critical Thinking was pretty much questions where you had to play triage nurse and prioritize certain patients over others. Also, there are questions about healthcare ethics..like nurse-patient relationships or sharing of patient info with others. It is a lot of common sense but at the same time a couple of them were a little bit trickier and did require me to think a little bit. As for preparation, I didn't do any. But, I would suggest looking up nursing rules for how to triage

    The Critical Thinking questions are about how to prioritize patient care needs and also test your very basic nursing ethics knowledge. It is common sense as it is applied to a healthcare setting.

    I didn't do any prep for this part personally, but I think that if I were to do it again I might research rules for how to Triage a patient. Also, if you aren't familiar with nursing ethics...like patient privacy HIPPA stuff, maybe just look over that briefly as well. Don't go crazy-it is really just a lot of logical reasoning.
