    You don't hate it because you passed, if you really feel the pain of people that failed and then feel the senselessness of this HESi thing, you would understand better, but anyways, goodjob, I am very happy for you and by the way I am waiting to take it the second time, I failed woefully on the first one, made the lowest grade in the entire program, a misly ass 647 when I needed 850 to pass, isn't that something?. What I am doing is studying the Saunders Nclex book because someone in our school told me he read it and took and passed the HESI and NCLEX all together, I find that book helpful if anyone struggled like I did, please pray for me, I need to pass this test in January so that I can sit for my board exam. The lVN program was really really hard but I made it through, but couldn't believe how I fell from the tree so badly.

    I completely understand. My school required 900 on the final HESI to graduate. I made 891 on 1st, 858 on 2nd, and after fasting and praying at my church for 24 hours I made 1006 on final and 3rd HESI. God is so good! Boards were so easy in my opinion. Only had 75 questions and they were much easier than HESI. Good luck on your schooling. Don't quit, you can do it!
    I am so happy for you, great job, I just wish I can get the so needed 850, God please that's all I need, please help me God, please if you don't mind, could you please go to your church and pray for me while I am praying in my room, I am so desperate, please pray for me, my name is Gosple.

    The only thing that has kept me strong through all my challenges is my faith that god had something planned for me, and it wasn't RN at this time in my life, have faith because god does have a plan for all of us, sometimes its hard to understand his will because we all try to live by our own will, and hesi isn't the end all, remember that, where one door closes, god always opens up another...good luck

    Hi I have been where you guys were. I have info and did a ton of research about the Hesi bc of course where I went to school they did not have a review which is why a lot of people don't pass the first time. If anyone wants my info my IM name is the same as my email address and I will gladly send you my info, bc it is GOOD!! A good thing to know is that there are 4 versions of the tests. This is how it works where I went to school. V-1 exit practice hesi. V2 the 1st exit hesi, V-3 the redo, and then V-4 the last one you can take and then have to retake the last 4 wks of school inculding redoing a ton of preceptorship hours. I would be glad to help anyone, just ask!!

    That's true, you are very correct, because I have been trying to get in the rn program but that never worked but even when I wasn't trying to get in the program, I was accepted and I overcame all the trials and tribulations and temptations, so I think it is my time. Thanks a lot for your advice, I appreciate it.

    HESI should be banned in every state like it is in New York, the STATE BOARD EXAMINATION should be the only test a student nurse should have to take after finishing their nursing curriculum to determine if they will be safe, effective nurses...

    I have not heard of this ban in NY. As a matter of fact, at my school we take at least one HESI every semester for our first three semesters, and 3 HESIs during our last semester.
