    I am so frustrated from this test, last try I had version # 3 and if anyone has any info in version # 4 I would realy appreciated. At this point I do not know what to do, I read the hesi book page per page, I did the cd questions (horrible questions) I am also doing Saunders questions, they are easier than the hesi ones but hesi is comleatly different and I am afraid that I will be confused. If anyone has some info from version 4 or maybe 5 I am not sure how many they are but I know my last one was nr 3 and I thik this time we will have nr 4. From 53 students only 18 passed and if we do not pass this time we do not graduate, can you imagine that, 3 years of no sleep no life for nothing.

    My wife just completed her final quarter of an ADN RN program but received an incomplete for her grade. The school revised the sylabis after the quarter started to limit the students to four attempts at the HESI exit exam which they just switched to the previous quarter. We hired an attorney and he states that they have clearly breached the "contract" or student handbook which in Ohio the courts have ruled is a legally binding contract because it doesn't mention any standardized exams required for graduation. Their claim is that they just changed the requirements for the final class and not the graduation requirements! We have proof that students from the previous quarter took the exit exam at least seven time and at least one never met the 850 benchmark, yet those students graduated and passed the NCLEX on the first attempt! Other students who passed the exit exam on the first try haven't passed the NCLEX after two attempts. The school claims that research backs up the validity of the HESI, but i'm not seeing it! If anyone has any lawsuits that may be relavent in our case could you share it? At this point it is my opinion that the school just wants to bleed up even drier of our money and drag this through court until we can't afford to fight them anymore! Please help

    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!!

    No response? Did I offend anyone? I hope not. I am frustrated just as much as you guys. I looked on the hesit website yesterday. They offer various types of HESI exams. Entrance, specialty, midcurricular, and remediation. Why couldn't our school utilize any of these? Instead, they abandone my classmates, left them with nothing. Not even a degree. I saw one of their college transcript. Where it states Degree type, the school left it blank. Meaning... she did not recieve any type of degree. However, she did have 112 college credit hours. Most are nursing. Which we know are not transferrable.
    I am so deeply concern with this form of punishment. I can't understand why the school does not want to help.

    Well, if anyone wants to help this cause that is fine. That would be the most honorable thing to do.

    I am thankful to read your advocacy in the manner.
    i'm having the same issue. i took the hesi a week ago and failed needed a 900 and got 810.this is my first attempt. i didnt know until after i took it that there were practice exams through hesi. called to see if i could purchase one and was told the school or instructor had to purchase. students could not. why did they never even give us the open of the practice test?

    our school applies our hesi score as 25% of our final grade! we have subject hesis at the end of each semester for each class and they count as final exam for that class, which is 25% of our final grade in that class!!!!. then our exit hesi is also worth 25% or our final grade for our 8 credit course, role transition... so far we are the only school that does this!!!! :grn:

    So, do first time takers usually take V-1? Or is it randomized according to what the school will give you?

    V-1 is the first EXIT hesi. Then if you fail that one and your school gives it to you a second time, then I think that one is called V-2.

    how similar is the NLN to the HESI? Is the material the same? If you prep for one will you be equally prepared for the other?

    thanks

    They are NOTHING alike!! NLN is like a ACT test, it has different subjects like reading, math, english, algebra, etc. HESI is like a mini state board I had to take after each semester to progress to the next level. I got the books on each subject, like OB-GYN, medsurg,psych, etc and each had a cd with test q&a and that is how I studied for each HESI. The HESI book alone did not help me even thought other class mates of mine said it really helped them. I hope this information helps. God Bless!!!!

    Hesi has V-1, V-2, V-3...., etc. Depending on how many times your school allows you to take the exit hesi, the versions go up. If you are taking hesi for the first time, you take V-1 no matter which school you attend. If you didn't pass the first time, then you take V-2 the next time. I do not know about the other versions because my school allows you to take the hesi only 2 times.
