Hesi Scores

  1. For any nurse or nursing student currently in a program,

    I wanted some advice on whether I should retake my HESI Test.

    My scores were a 92 on Math and Reading. 86 on grammar and vocab. 80 on Anatomy and a 850 for critical thinking. I am applying for the Lonestar Cyfair Nursing program.

    I also have an A in english and just passed my AP 2 class with a B.

    Should I retake my Hesi and AP class or am I high enough to get accepted?

    Those accepted, what were your scores like?

    Any advice is greatly appreciated guys! Thank you!

    Your HESI score and Critical Thinking score are both great! If I get those scores like you, I probably won't retake it. Do you have certain classes that they'll evaluate as part of being accepted into the program? My school will evaluate A&P 1, ENGL. 1101 (Composition and Rhetoric), MATH (College Algebra), and PSYCH. 1101. My GPA for these classes is 4.0, but unfortunately, I didn't score high enough in my Critical Thinking, so I have to retake my HESI again this Thursday. Hoping to get a better score.

    I'm confident enough to get better scores but I wanted to know if it's enough. i'm always so worried. My school only looks at the scores for English and AP. For a higher score in the critical thinking, I suggest watching youtube videos for it. Those help! it's more about morals and what is right to do versus medical. It's about caring about a patient in more than just the physical. Hope you get a high score!

    Watching youtube videos is what I've been doing. Aside from the ABC's (Airways, Breathing, and Circulation), I also learned about Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs. That is where I probably messed up in my Critical Thinking. I was only looking for a scenarios where I can apply the ABC's, but I didn't think about the Maslow's.
    I hope I'll score high this time too! Thank you!

    I would suggest looking at the previous applicants' grades specifically for Lone Star Cyfair to get a rough estimate of the of grades you may need. If you search for something like "Lone Star Cyfair hopefuls" you should find something.
