Janet,, your instructor is right. The HESI measures your ability to pass the NCLEX. I'm not sure a 70 is something to promote as a goal though. Shoot for higher. And dont take it lightly. Study for it, because study for it amounts to studying for NCLEX. I felt it was actually a harder test than NCLEX.
Most schools are requiring it to pass the course and graduate, and its to their advantage to do that as far as their accreditation is concerned. Dont we all want a school with high graduation and pass rates? It's kind of fool hearty for a school to spend the money for the software to adminster the test and then not make it a requirement anyway.
Study your behinds off, and study everything. It's worth it.
I was recently asked to sit on a panel for a BSN program that is trying to brainstorm with their outside clinical areas. The first thing that caught my eye was that their required HESI score in my opinion wasnt high enough.
Do the best you can and dont blow it off.
