We took the HESI last week, and I just looked at my scoresheet a little while ago. We were told to expect to do much worse than we were used to being a standardized exam and that we were only first semester nursing students. Well, I've done the whole standardized exam thing--a couple of times--so I wasn't stressing. I did nothing to study for it, although many of my classmates spent hours on NCLEX books. It is worth 15% of our course grade and part of our mandatory minimum 70% to move on program. They told us a 750 was minimum passing, 850 was expected and 900 was a score we could expect to pass the NCLEX with.

It was a 55 question test, I missed 2, and scored a 1435.

I'll take it.


  1. WOW! YOu are a smartie!!!! ;) Congrats!

  2. Hot damn!!! I should say so!! We'd commit you if you didn't!

  3. Wow way to go! Guess you should just jump on in and take NCLEX... I somehow think you'd pass that! Glad to see all is well!

  4. Holy Moly!! That is awesome!! You are in your first semester?I say skip the rest and go straight for the NCLEX!!( wouldnt that be nice!) Good for you ! I did pretty well on the HESI too. I didnt study either but we did nt take it until nursing 4. The NCLEX is gonna be a breeze for you !
