Quote from Alexandres
My lecture teacher just told us today that of the last class that took the HESI, only about 11 people passed. The faculty was very surprised at this, since Macomb's NCLEX pass rate is 100%. She told us to review electrolytes and respiratory; these were the sections that are currently giving students the most problems. Although they don't say you have to study for it, we inferred they would like people do some review.
Hey Alex! It's Jenny from Micro! Now Jenny the RN! YAY!
Not sure what teacher was telling you that info. I graduated class of Dec 2005 - my entire class was a 4.0 going into the program and basically everyone passed the exit HESI (I don't think anyone studied...we were too stressed and "burned out"!!)
FYI-from those in my class who I have spoken to, most people passed the NCLEX at 75 questions. The ones that I heard did not pass had some issues in their personal lives which I assume interfered with study time, etc.
NCLEX questions were MAINLY leadership/management and prioritizing patient care (ex: you are the charge nurse what pts will you assign to this new RN? or: your pts are XX, YY, and ZZ who will you assess FIRST)
Good luck - Macomb has an awesome program and it really prepared me for the "real world" of nursing. I am finishing my RN orientation at the end of this month....YAY!
