Hesi-NCLEX comparison

  1. I just took my Hesi exit exam last week and got a 908. They say that the score indicates an excellent chance of passing the NCLEX exam. Does anyone have any thoughts on that? Has anyone had similar scores on the Hesi and did well on the NCLEX?

    I found the tests to not really have anything in common with each other. I felt that the Hesi was a very straight forward, content based exam. I scored an 1198. I preferred the NCLEX , because it's more interactive. I know if I got the last question right because of the next question, or vice-versa.

    I don't think that HESI can really predict how well a student will do on boards if they pass their exam. Don't really care about the stats either I think it's based on the individual.
    Good Luck!!!
