@Taylor. Hi there! Are you in the Dfw location? I just took the HESI a week ago because my Aug one got cancelled. It went well. Good luck!

Yes! Was the HESI difficult? How much studying did you put in for it?

To be honest, I found it easy. I studied for 2 weeks. We only need to take all the English (grammar, vocab, comprehension) & Math. I am a Math major (& former teacher) so I got over 90 for all the sections. Reading comprehension is tricky & I have heard NurseHub helps though I have not personally used it. I just googled and used free resources.

Math - lots of ratios/proportions

Know your conversions (km/m, pint/oz.....)

Adding, subtracting fractions (including improper fractions & mixed numbers).

My friend in Houston did her test a few days ago. She said she found many resources on Quizlet.

Hi. Welcome. I took the HESI a couple of weeks ago. Good luck!

Taking the HESI on Saturday! So excited to start this application journey but I have to say I am overwhelmed. Are any of you looking to apply to other university's / ABSN programs? I feel there are many to choose from and looking for advice! Thanks for starting this thread it is great to know others are in this too. 🙂


@silvergirl20 Good luck on the HESI! I just took mine yesterday and it was a lot easier than I expected! Right now I'm only applying to Baylor's ABSN program. The only other 2 ABSN programs I found in DFW area are UTA and TCU, but they require other prereqs and the TEAS instead of HESI which is a little frustrating. Also, after attending the Baylor info session I just knew this was where I wanted to go and it seems like such a great program!

Are there other ABSN programs in the area that I'm unaware about?
