    I feel your pain 100%, I was doing so great before HESI. I had a B in the first test and after HESI I was done because the school I go, they count HESI as 50% of final grade and there is 3 test including HESI for the last semester not counting practicum which takes all of your time. This is very unfair and at least we should have a prep course or a practice test to have a feeling of what to expect. I am repeating the semester again and Im giving my all to pass this test! Lets put everything in God's hands he has everything in control...

    Can anyone tell me how well your hesi score can predict your performance in Nclex? Is the hesi or Nclex harder?

    Hi
    I spoke to one of my classsmates and they passed after the 5th time. Her advice was to read Maslow and the strategies in the Kaplan review book. Do at least 600 questions a day. Not all at one time. Do 60 then take a break and do 60 more and study the rationale for the ones that you got wrong. Don't just read them, know why they are wrong.

    I am a victim of the devastating effects of the HESI. I have bad news for those who are fighting the HESI thru the city colleges. Over spring break WIA which is a source of school funding that people who attend city colleges are aware of tried to get a HESI reviewer in and pay for it. Students who don't have WIA such as myself and 13 others were not invited to the HESI review. Wia at the last minute decided not to pay for the review because it is not part of the city of chicago colleges curriculm but our esteem interim director decided to allow the review to be held and students pay for it out of their own pockets it was 225.00 Imagine having to come up with that at the last minute and most of us can't work in our final year. Anyway the people who took the review were told quite a few of the answers to the test HESI version 1(All the students were not informed of the review they didn;t call us or let us know that they were having a HESI review). After completing our final year and passing we took a 3 day board paid for NCLEX review at malcom x college and then we got only 1 day to study for HESI in fact we take HESI the end of the week after our finals so we get no time to study for HESI because we are studying to pass finals (and then the 3 day review starts ) they don't even give us a week to study for HESI.

    The day before HESI the students who were at the review were emailed 80 of the answers to the questions of HESI Version -1 test so for the first time ever Olive Harvey Passed 70 Students at one time some people finished the four hour test within 1 hour how about that. We who didn't get answers mailed to us were called to the school monday the day after the test and were told that some type of computer malfunction happened and those who failed could retake the test because some answers weren't recorded correctly, not everyone would retake the test just those who failed. Well we were given the answers to the test version that day, which was one day after the test and of course we went in with confidence because never have 70 people passed and we were finally given the answers to 80 of the questions just like everyone else.

    The test was changed and it was much more difficult plus we spent all night studying the answers to version 1 just like the 70 classmates who had the answers saturday nite before the test. (I did ask my so called friends why would they not call everyone and make sure they had the information and I was told they thought everyone had it afterall they got it the day before the test so the had to spend the only 1 day we get to study memorizing the answers). Well of course I failed 836 as well as did my other classmates. One of my classmates who failed was president of the student nurses assoc. and one of our class officers. We didn't get to graduate or take part in the pinning ceremony and I owe over 38,000.00 in student loans I did so well in school I got excellent grades and worked my fanny off. NOW I will never be a nurse and I am 40yrs old I wasted 4 years of my life and I have nothing but debt to show for it.

    We are not being given another review like last years students who didn't pass HESI got because it was of course so many of them just like it is every year. This year nearly the whole class passed so they are completely abandoning us. I emailed the director and she emailed me back that she is on vacation and would not answer any email until she got back Aug. 17th my classmate went to see the dean and now she is answering us but only because they have too. They could care less how they have destroyed our lives. I found a document with students names who have failed the hesi and that is year after year most students and I wondered what happens to all theses people 40-50 students per school where are they?

    We got a letter saying we must pay for our own review to take the test for the second time. The first time where the 70 students passed doesn't count only the second time counted. (I know that evolve and the entire school knows that wide spread cheating went on but no one will admit it, I did get the answer sheet one day after the test and probably I wouldn't be this upset if I had of been one of those who passed cause I am aware that the odds are against us they don't teach us to pass HESI we do that on our own. So without the help the students who passed got most of them would not have passed some of them barely passed their classes.) Last year the school paid for a Rayfield review to come in and teach the students before they tested a second time this year we get nothing and if you don't have the money to pay for your own review by 7/3/09 you can't take the test until DEC. how about that? for unfairness. They told us by letter that we must pay for our own review and we must provide proof and then we can retest on 7/17/09 or in DEC.

    I would have never wasted my money and time going to nursing school working like a dog if I had known this would happen, I understand why there is a nursing shortage? I wonder if we can take the LPN or are we just stuck with nothing? I don't know what to do should I wait till dec when I will have forgotten everything or is it possible to get into another nursing school? Can anyone help or give me some answers thanks in advance for any help
    Left out and devastated

    OMG!!! I was reading all of this and had myself truly freaked out about the HESI. BUT, I found out that we do take the HESI as an exit exam, but our school has changed it to where you can take it three times. If you do not pass after the third time, you have to take an independent study course. Once you finish that you can take the HESI as many times as needed to pass. Still sucks, but is so much better than thinking I would have wasted all these years for nothing! Man I feel so much better now!



    what school do you go to that you can take the HESI
