Failed my Third Exit RN Hesi

  1. 0
    Does anyone know if the Version 4 RN Exit Hesi is harder from the version 1,2,3?

    I feel real terrible knowing I cannot pass this Exit hesi. I have to get >900. I have taken hesi tests after each of my nursing courses & I would average 700, but I would still pass the class because I would do well in my in class exams!

    I have no idea how to get above a 900. I feel like Hesi questions differ from the NCLEX 4000 questions. When I am taking the hesi test I am always confused and I feel like 2 answers can be correct, and I end up choosing the wrong one!

    Please help! I need & want to graduate in March!

    What study aids are you using other than the NCLEX 4000? Try Saunders or NCSBN learning extension.

    I scored 1000+ on my exit HESI last month on the first try. My school requires a 900 as well. I can tell you how I studied.

    To let you you are right...the HESI questions are much different from NCLEX questions. So here is a "mini" explanation of how I studied:

    1. I used a website called It's not a scam as I saw listed on another post. It helped me immensely because it has questions that are VERY similar to the style you see on the actual HESI. There are 100's of questions there. It gives thorough rationale, and there is also a study plan available.

    2. I brushed up on CONTENT (pedi, OB, etc) through Saunders and NCLEX 4000. I made sure to read the rationales. The questions I missed I wrote out the rationale so I could go back and review it later. *OB was my worse subject before studying this way...I scored over 1500 on OB on the actual HESI*

    3. I purchased the Evolve Hesi book...used it to also brush up with content.

    If you have any questions feel free to ask!

    Congrats! Passing Hesi is one of the greatest feelings in the world, you should be so proud of yourself!!
    My school allows four chances to pass, I luckily passed the first time.. but have a lot of friends who have yet to be successful. They are about to take their 3rd exam.. and I've been doing everything I can (from moral support, to talking through questions) for some close friends. As a survivor of a 3rd exam, do you have any advice I can give them on how to be successful on this exam?!
