    I passed the HESI at Truman, only about 30 of us finished from an original class of about 130?

    Like one of the posters said, the 30 that were left all passed the HESI and except for 1 or 2 people, we passed the NCLEX with the minimum number of questions answered

    We could've held the graduation in a phone booth.

    xcoprn are you serious? What happens to those who fail? Only 30 out of 130 graduated from the program???

    We had 8 people who failed on the last exam. They had GPA's of 77.87.

    The passing grade is 78.00. I figured it out at the time. It was basically one question for the semester. It was another Truman drama. The other city colleges had no problem rounding 77.87 to 78.00.

    I'm hoping that they took the last semester over again.

    Sorry, not GPA but cumulative test score average. You need a 78.00% average on all tests for the semester to pass. For example, you could fail an exam by getting a 76% but still pass the program if you scored an 80% on the next test

    hey, I just read your post today. I'm having the same problem with the Hesi exam. It is not fair. Did you ever pass it? I was thinking about the whole protest idea too.

    Truman Student; I'm new to this site and I understand your pain, I'm responding late. I just took my Hesi 10th and failed!!! It was a horrible experience. I agree we should find some way to end this exam.
