    I have failed the hesi 3x and going for the 4th. I like many others am very down and frustrated. Your post is very uplifting and made me refocus again. If you could give me any help I would greatly appreciate it. I really don't think anyone should ever go through this especially after completing nursing school itself and succeeding. Thanks for the positive feed back.

    ok... i saw this thread and laughed... let me tell you why.

    im sure some of you have seen my posts on here lately dogging the hesi. i absolutely... freaking... HATE this exam. it is hard, and im sure you know this.

    we had 5 times total (turns out our administration gave people another chance, so there will be 6 total.)

    on my fourth hesi attempt, i got an 838.

    this past wednesday, i took my hesi, and got a 963... which shocked the hell out of me. if i can do it, YOU CAN DO IT. TRUST ME.

    i found that if you go online and look up NCLEX 3500 institutional version and do the questions on there, it helps. i think thats what helped me. we also did a mandatory NCLEX review from ATI at our school last monday through thursday. that was cool too. ive also done a hurst review along the way.

    i didnt even bother with remediation on the HESI website... its GARBAGE. you read like freaking 10 pages to look over something you miss. that may work for some, but it didnt for me. plus, the catagories for questions overlap so much, so one question might be professionalism/med-surg/geriatrics/psych... or some crap like that, so you cant REALLY tell what youre doing bad in. also, heres another suggestion:

    i was CONSISTENTLY weak in maternity and psych... so all i did for the 2 weeks up until exam is go over questions in maternity and psych, and the last 3 days or so i did a little bit of everything. just do questions from nclex 3500 on your weak areas, and every 3rd day or so do a little bit of everything. 5 days until the exam i started doing 250 questions every day. trust me, it helps. dont do them all at once! split them up... do 50 in one sitting, go away for a couple of hours, come back and do 50. you'll remember the material MUCH better.

    hang in there, you CAN do it!!!! and its SO great when you finally do. life is so much better now =)

    if you need anymore help let me know. send me a PM. our classmates and I wrote down a bunch of stuff from review for the HESI, so i could email you some review questions we all pitched in and remembered =)

    jollydog, how can i get in touch with u..please email me...we take our third hesi in two weeks..and they are giving version four or five...idk which one yet...please email me....
