Hello fellow educators....I am dealing with a dilema which I have no control over as I am a staff member, not administration, but it is just eating away at my concious. My community college uses the HESI exit exam for the ADN... Read More
- 0Mar 31, '11 by rockstar11I passed it the first time with a 935. I didn't study at all, just a good night sleep, and a shot of anger turned into energy. honestly. had a meeting about almost failing a class before the meeting, and then this?
ok so REAL advice? you need to THINK. not to memorize. If doing questions helps you, do them. if caving your head into a review book helps you, do it. ours was over 150 questions long and, obviously... quite the marathon. pace yourself. i zoned out quite a few times and gave myself permission to take a 5 minute break (in my chair of course!). so back to my first part - THINK. to me, it was like a chemistry exam (not the math)... but just that you need to think through so many levels. This is why, this is why because of this, this... etc. I don't really know how to explain it without giving specific questions. Obviously it doesn't cover ALL the material you learned in a nursing school, but more so how to think through problems.
Did I tell you you have to THINK? .....

I am about to take my hesi for the 4th and final time in attempt to be able to graduate. The last time I made an 800. I was wondering if anyone has any helpful tips or anything for version v4? Anything anyone would have would be greatly appreciated! My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org!

Unless I am wrong, the requirements stated that were needed to pass that program at that time are all you are required to achieve. If you were accepted in 2008 and a hesi score of 700 was required to pass, then that is what stands for you. If it was not a graduation requirement at the time you were accepted and enrolled, then it is not a requirement for you now. At least that's how it works at my university. Pull your course catalog, review it, then take to your academic advisor. You should have received one during orientation. If not, you should be able to pull it up on the school's website. Good Luck. Jacemont.My school gives us 3 times to pass with a 900 or we don't graduate. I just took it for the 2nd time and can't seem to get out of the 700's. They just made it a graduation requirement after I was already in my 3rd level. They made us sign a paper saying that we understood and if we didn't sign, we had to leave class immediately. My 1st test was 2 weeks into the semester, so we hadn't even been taught all the material. Now, I just took the 2nd one without all the material being taught, again. Our instructor does everything she can to intimidate us & has told us that if we go to the dean or complain to state board about anything that it WILL get back to her and we WILL be the ones to suffer. Do they go through state board to approve of the Hesi? And- about us all coming together to fight this with an attorney, does it matter that we all signed that paper? I'm sure that is out of the question anyway because if she thought we were fighting it, she would find some other way to make sure we don't pass.
Also- I read the Kaplan book for test taking (twice) and read all the Hesi hints in the NCLEX study guide. I'm thinking it may have hurt me because I was trying to answer every question using the tips, instead of going with what I know. The only thing left that I know to do is answer question after question- all this while trying to study for my 4th test & final exam.

I have been having issues with exit HESI and I need help! I just took exit hesi 1 and failed ! we have to pass with an 850! I only have 1 chance left.. and I am kind of desparate! we took exit hesi v1 the last time.. so im guessing we are taking the v2 next time? any tips? maybe the test bank? anything would help.. i worked really hard to pass exit hesi 1, but obviously did not work.. I tried nlcex 4000, saunders and HESI evolve book/CD.. im running out of options.. i take the test in 2 weeks...
- 0May 2, '11 by CRW2010I took Hesi 5Xs beofre finally passing with a 1100! I alaways scored around 800's and could not get out of that range at all no matter how much I studied. I started of using hesi book and hesi questions online. Then used Saunders. I used Hurst during my 3rd attempt and was informative, but didn't help me pass though. Finally on my last shot, I decided to do Kaplan. I wish that I would have done it sooner! Everyone learns differently and of course every review course teaches differently. Kaplan was great for teaching test taking strategies that I've never even learned before in nursing school. Even thought their review course is a NCLEX course, I guarantee that it helps for the hesi as well. I have been out of nursing school for a year now. I finally have a shot at NCLEX. Hope this will help. Please don't give up! You have made it this far for a reason and you're only a few hurdles away from being a RN. Goodluck to all the future nurses out there =)
