    Hi Liz,

    So I called NursingCAS. BAD NEWS! They totally lost my transcript. They claimed it is no where to be found when the mailing address was correct. It is a smart idea to mail out a second copy of your transcript.

    For those of you who already took the HESI - Can you go back to a question if you had already answered it? Do you get your score at the end? Was a calculator allowed or is it the on-screen computer calculator?

    Any feedback is appreciated!

    You get your score immediately after finishing each section. Calculator is on screen and no you can't go back to a question.

    Just got back from taking the exam. There were more questions than I expected: 30 on Bio and A&P, 55 on reading comp. Based on the scores I received, 5 questions in each section were experimental and not factored in scoring. You get 4 hours so take your time and don't rush it. What else...can't think...

    Crazyfrog looks like you did well. The averages went up today in all areas from what it looks like on the evolve website. Math also has 55 questions.

    Thank you very much crazyfrog! I'm going crazy trying to study everything! I work full time, and by the time I get home the kids always need something!!! It's just craziness

    What are the averages? How did you find that?

    I'm not sure you can see it before you take the test but afterwards you can see the average score for each section. So you can figure the overall average from that. Right now overall is 81.83.

    Is that average from everyone taking it in the US or just for NJCU? just curious

    The average for NJCU but both cohorts are under one ID so it is for both Wall and JC.

    Good for you...that's amazing!!! Congrats!!!

    Math shouldn't be too much of a problem for me, and as for the vocab, I made some notecards with the words I didn't know from the HESI study guide (hopefully that will help a little). Reading comprehension..I'm hoping it'll be straightforward. Trying to just study the bio and A&P as much as possible. The only thing that's left is prayers!!! If I don't do well on this HESI then I'm sure my application will get overlooked
