    What is the HESI practice? In my program we didn't have a HESI exit practice exam. We had the one exit exam, and if you failed, you did so many hours of remediation and then took it again.

    It's never too early to start preparing yourself. There are alot of questions, and it takes time to read the rationales and truly understand them.

    What exactly are you having problems with? Content of the question or are you just not sure how to answer the questions?

    The HESI is simular to the NCLEX exam and the best indicator on your success of passing the NCLEX the first time. In order to pass the HESI, you MUST be at the level where you are asking yourself "Why" is this happening to the pt.


    Question: A pt returns from a liver biopsy, you would place them in what position?
    Answer: Right side.

    Rationale: applies pressure to the liver so the and prevents hemorrage...
    [COLOR=#000000]Question: A client receiving a blood transfusion begins tocomplain of chills.
    What is the FIRSTaction the nurse should take?
    Answer: Stop the infusion

    Rationale: Pt is having an adverse reaction to the transfusion which could be r/t the wrong blood type being infused. You would D/C the infusion and call the doctor.

    I would suggest going to and complete those questions that are very similar to what you could get on the actual HESI. Other than that, just breathe and expose yourself to as many HESI or NCLEX related questions as possible. Take notes on the rationales, make note cards, do whatever you need to make sure you KNOW the information!

    Best of luck to you and hope this helps.[/COLOR]
