I have a friend of mine that is currently in nursing school in Georgia. She is dealing with a similar situation with HESI. She has graduated along with other students and has not passed HESI, therefore, cannot take the NCLEX. The score she has to obtain is a 900. The students are allowed to take the test 10 times and she will be taking it for the 5th time on Wednesday. HESI is a complete joke. If anyone is thinking of going into a nursing program look for one that has no exit exam. She and many others are still trying to pass HESI and they graduated in May. She always makes above 800 but has yeat to make a 900. There have also been people that have made in the 890 range and still must keep taking it because they have not reached a 900. The college also payed for the students to take the Rayfield Review and it did not help them much for HESI. I think she is best for NCLEX review. HESI I have been told is much harder than NCLEX.

Continue to pray, Goodluck!!

My school required us to take the HESI exit exam as well...I did manage to pass it and graduate, but I honestly do not think it represents the NCLEX-Rn very well. HESI was a lot harder...a lot of fact based questions compared to the NCLEX which had a lot of critical thinking, delegation and prioritization.

Yeah, it's all up to the individual schools how many times you can take Hesi and what score is minimum to pass. I know the lowest score you can get was an 825 and the highest was 950. Some schools you can only can take it 2 times and others 10 times :uhoh3:

This is an OUTRAGE!!!:angryfire:angryfire

One of my co-workers has to continue working as a PCT, while she goes thru nursing school AGAIN! She researched, and found a college that doesn't use HESI as a pass/fail.......I just hope that program doesn't decide to change their minds!

I really feel for all you Illinois RNs. When I graduated in WI, we only had to take this as a measure to see how strengths and weakness, in order to prepare to take the NCLEX.

Is this an issue at all of the city colleges? I was considering attending Truman, but this is worrisome. Does anyone know if this is a pervasive problem there, as well?

The GOOD news about Truman is most of their students will pass Hesi. :nuke:

The BAD news is Truman program is very hard to pass. If you can't pass the program, you can't take Hesi and if you can't take Hesi, you can't take NCLEX. :madface:

Thanks for the reply.

Do the students pass generally because they're better-prepared? Why is the program difficult to pass - is it just a very rigorous program?

TIA

Truman prepares their students very well on the Hesi. One month before the students takes the test, they will go over the material in detail.

It's difficult to pass because the school weaves out the weak and only the strong survives. I knew someone who went their and they don't play around. You needed a min of 80 just to pass any exam, no extra credit and no excuses!
