    Congrats everyone on graduating. I wonder if they will abolish the Hesi? It seems that those of us still in the nursing program may still be subjected to the Hesi, according to the Chancellor's wording. I hope that those of us still in the program have the fortitude to continue the good fight if necessary.

    Thanks to all of you guys that fought for justice. You effort: priceless! I'm just hopping it's also abolished for some of us that are yet to finish the program.

    Of course. Studying is crucial, but it is essential to understand why an answer is correct or incorrect.
    RNs assess, intervene, and reassess. That is how you should apply your thought process to any question.

    HESI Amnesty For 2005-2009 Chicago Community College Students Who Failed To Graduate

    Attention All CCC Students from 2005-2009 who didn't graduate due to HESI:

    CCC is offering amnesty until Dec. 2010, if you didn't graduate due to not passing HESI you will now be given your ADN and allowed to graduate. If you contact the nursing director at your campus before 7/10/2010 you will be allowed to graduate at no cost 8/11/2010 and be signed off so you can take the NCLEX and you can take a review at the schools cost, July 14,15, &16th so hurry and see the nursing director. There will be one more graduation in Dec. but you must RSVP with the nursing director from your campus by 9/1/2010. This is an incredible offer and it is a chance for the CCC schools to right a wrong done to many many nursing students who were wrongfully denied a chance to take NCLEX after completing their nursing program. RUN don't Walk to the nearest Chicago Community College Campus today!!

    I don't think so. ( . It;s only for City Colleges of Chicago.

    This amnesty is only for city colleges of chicago but it is not impossible for students at Morton college to also mount a mass complaint against the HESI. This test was meant to be used as an aid or a tool to help a student learn his weakness and to use as a study guide. Instead some schools use the HESI as a way to weed out students who they feel won't pass NCLEX, or as a way to predict the chances of a student passing the NCLEX on the first try. First you need to do a little investigating how many students regularly or yearly don't pass HESI, also does your school have a program to teach the students to pass the HESI and most important of all when you don't pass HESI what does the school do to help you pass HESI.
    Good luck and I wish you well
