    We had to take the HESI after every class ( like OB, PEDS, MENTAL HEALTH, FUNDAMENTALS, and MED SURG) and if we didnt pass we had to remediate...but we have an exit we HAVE to pass before we take boards..Thats the one I am on now...scared

    @alunchik...it's hard to find study stuff for the midcurricular because it is tailored to the classes your school requires before the cutoff...ie, our midcurricular did not have pediatrics on it because we haven't taken it yet, but yours may. Just find out what classes youre taking before the cutoff and go to town on that hesi nclex book and cd. It's the only thing thay helped me pass!

    We also have HESIs every semester. We have a HESI on the same day as the class final for each nursing subject. They account for about 15% of your grade and we all study the entire semesters worth of work to try to pass them, but we also have ATI practice tests to help out with that. This semester I have 3 HESIs. I'd say know the subject matter so that you are able to prioritize like you would for NCLEX because that is what I had to do for the last one. If you have access to ATI it is also a great tool.

    HESI and Final on the same day? WOW that's bad. At least we had a week between our HESI and Final. Our HESI is worth 5% of our total grade.

    I just took my first HESI after fundamentals and scored a 1216. I basically read the questions carefully and just rationalized them out. I found the questions on regular exams less straightforward. I didn't have time to do a lot of "extra" prep bc I'm in an accelerated online program (clinicals on weekends) since most of my classmates work, and our regular exams usually covered 8-10 chapters every 2 weeks, with pharm tests the alternate week. Don't stress over it!! It's not that bad!

    Get the HESI Nclex book!! Our lecture tests come from HESI materials...I study from that book only. I usually just glance over my lecture textbooks. I make B's on lecture tests and have passed 4 of 4 HESIs so far. The book is a lifesaver! It has "HESI hints" that are specific to each test. Also, if your school uses HESI you should have an Evolve password. Log on and do the case studies and Nclex practice with HESI questions. It really helps! Promise!
    I have an Evolve password, where do I find these case studies/questions? I just had my health assessment HESI and scored 1175, but I would have liked to review more beforehand. I had looked on the site and couldn't find any practice questions other than our text resources.

    In my program, the HESI IS your final exam, and worth 20% of your grade. I've never made below an 88% on them, and I am in my final semester. Elsevier has an NCLEX HESI review book and I have found it to be invaluable, it's usually all I study before finals.

    My school is awful I regret coming to it so much. We have a hesi for every single class and it is worth 25% of our grade. Every single time it knocks my A down to a B. It's absolutely ridiculous and I HATE the hesi. It is killing my dreams of applying to grad scool since it knows my 3.7 to a 3.0 every time

    I'm confused. We also have to take the HESI at at the end of each semester, so 4 in all. Is there like a HESI 1, HESI 2, HESI 3, and HESI 4? Or do you just take the same test at the end of each semester (this wouldn't make any sense)? When I look on the forum, there is only the "entrance hesi" and the "exit hesi." I don't think we take the "entrance hesi" since I've already had to take the PAX-RN to get into the program. Furthermore, if there are 4 seperate tests, are there 4 seperate study guides??

    We have to take the Hesi at the end of our courses and it counts as our final exam. There are different tests for each class you are in. So after fundamentals, your Hesi will be on fundamentals. If you are taking OB, peds, it will be on those subjects. More than likely, you will be taking different exams. And I believe there is an actual HESI study guide that you can purchase. If you are confused about anything, you can always ask your instructor for clarification.

    Like others have said, the end of semester HESI exams are specialized to the subject. We have one for Concepts (fundamentals), Adult 2, OB, Adult 2, Pedi, and we just had the exit HESI. Our passing grade for the exit was 850. The others the school counted the composition score for grading purposes.

    The only way to study is practice the questions. I like Saunders, because when you're practicing you can look at the 'strategy' for answering that type of question. I use those stradegies when I'm not sure the answer.. and it's worked well for me. Also, ALWAYS read the rationales.

    We had one after every nursing class we took and all the students hated them! It cost me a few A's but i believe it prepared me for NCLEX.
