Was it in the curriculum for the last semester? It’s usually part of that and is explained at the beginning of the last semester. I know when I graduated with my associates, if a student failed to pass the HESI 2xs then their paperwork would not be sent into the state and they would have to come in and take a mandatory review course.The paperwork that is filled out for the state during the last semester, is what matters not the degree or the transcript. A person can hold a degree in nursing but at the same time If the school doesn’t send the paperwork in because they did not satisfy requirements ,it will mean nothing. Just like if someone went through nursing school and graduated top of their class if they didn’t meet state requirements say they lied about a crime etc they couldn’t take the NCLEX.
