I have to take an OB HESI in a few weeks and I'm trying to get my mind right & be prepared. I have hit benchmark on 2 of my 3 HESIs and I really want to knock this one out of the park in case I decide to precept in OB somewhere next semester.

I heard that the HESI is changing a little this year. Not sure if that is an Evolve thing or school specific. I do know that our med-surg II HESI this semester will be 25% pharmacology but has not been that high on previous tests.

Any tips or tricks you can share? Anyone know if the tests were more post-partum focused or more in another area or was yours pretty much everything?

thanks!

The best way I know how to prepare for exams, HESI or ATI is to practice test questions from Saunders NCLEX review cd. This worked well for me in LPN school and this is what I plan to do during RN transition.

I have to agree with itsmejuli. The first time I ever took HESI was the OB HESI and I did not do well. Luckily we were given three chances to take the HESI in order to move on to the next semester. I didn't need a third chance but I really feel that doing multiple NCLEX style questions really helped me. I do own the Saunders book, but I feel that for HESI studying from the Mosby's question bank was more effective. I found that after doing multiple questions from that Q&A bank, the HESI questions seemed similar.

Good luck on the HESI!!! Just took my NCLEX RN today so I hope all the HESI's we took in school prepared me :)

I have that Saunders book. I think we are also required to get the Lippincott book for one of our classes next semester.

I'm going to give these a try. I just really want to KILL this HESI! Not sure if I want to precept in L&D or an OB field but it is definitely high on my list. Our teachers make the assignments based on your HESI scores so I at least want that to be an available option for me.
