I have just recently starting taking my pre-req's and after reading some of the threads on the boards I am a little confused.... What is the NFLEX test (I think I got that wrong) is it the same as the HESI exam? Also, when did you start studing for those and when did you have to take them

Actually, Patricia is refering to HESI, not the NET. Let me start by by explaining the NCLEX: it is the nursing state board test which you will have to take after graduating from nursing school. It is the test that certifies you to practice nursing in your state. If you want to move to a different state, you don't have to take the NCLEX all over, as this is a national certifying test, and all states will recognize that you passed it. You will just have to fill out some paperwork for the new state you want to practice in. The HESI is a test you may take at the end of your nursing program, and it is suppose to be somewhat of a simulated NCLEX. It is suppose to give you an idea of how you will do on the NCELX, but I have heard of lots of examples where people failed one test, but passed the other test. And as medic stated, the NET is a test given at some schools as an entrance exam for the nursing program. Some schools give this, and others do not. Most of the nursing programs in my area do not give the NET, so check around with schools in your area to see if it a requirment. Hope this helps some. Good luck.
