Anyone know how many HESI Exit exam versions there are??

Can anyone tell me how many RN HESI exit exam versions there are? I know for sure that there are 4, but I've heard a small percentage say that there is versions 5,6,7. I know my friends that graduated from another schol only had versions 1-4. I know my school has versions 1-4 as well, but I don't know if they have more than that. I also know that they have retest 1-3 and maybe 4, but I'm not sure.

I thought v3 was the hardest, and v4 was the easiest. They are supposed to be weighted equally, but they are not. there were only 9 people who passed the v3 from our class.[/

forgot to add i am a LPN student not wanting information on the RN

There are 7 versions of the Hesi test. Each version has 3 sub-versions within. For example V-1a, V-1b, V-1c, V-2a, V-2b, V-2c, etc.........

I just took the Hesi LPN exit for the second time and failed.... I don't understand how a school and base one signal test on whether their students are LPN or not... I am a B student... I am just really ****** I just failed this thing about 45 mintutes ago.... any advice greatly appreciated...

Does anyone know of a school that doesn't have hesi as an exit exam rn or lpn courses. I want to go to a school that doesn't require hesi. Also does anyone know anything about a lawsuit in chicago against hesi
I realize I'm a little late to join this convo, but I didn't even know there was such thing as an exit exam until after I graduated from nursing school and passed the nclex. I went to Boston College and did my BSN as my undergraduate degree. We did not have any sort of exit exam. The only thing we had was what I'm assuming was a HESI-style practice exam that we took 4 months before graduation and was only used as an indicator of if our advisor would recommend we take a review course before the nclex. Hmm..

I took the hesi for the 4th time, and I made a 998.. I studied Kaplan for test taking skills, and did saunders and nclex 3500 review questions! Take your time and relax.. it can be done

hi, new to this site.
did you ever get anyone to send you a review for hesi. if so can you contact me..
thanx

I am looking for help on the exit hesi. Do u have any helpful hints or study guides?

i was told there were 4 versions. i just took the HESI last week and sadly i didnt pass but score pretty close which gives me hope when i take it again next month. i took version 1 if any one interested in so me tips let me know. maybe i can help.

MsShun....what from the Kaplan book did you study? Did the case studies really help? What version of the HESI did you take? Any hints for V3? email me or message me if you can!

I took HESI version 2 and scored 847. I am really scared becuase I have to re-take it. I have heard that we are allowed to take it only 3 times and if we don't, all the years of school will go to the trash??? Does any one know the alternatives to re-take HESI after failinf thrice? I know I am over reacting, but just wanted to know worst case scenario. Can also anybody tell me any CD or book that would help me to pass HESI/? something like test taking strategies....Thanks a lot guys....I will really appreciate any coment. God Bless!!

Was that the first time that your bff took the exam? I am just wondering because I thought that V1/V2 was usually given as the first take.

What is your email address?

I have passed it all 3 times I have taken it--we have to take and pass it after every semester. After the first semester I got an 1100 (we needed a 750 to pass), second semester I got a 900 (we needed an 800 to pass), yesterday I got a 1000 and we needed a 850 to pass. My hardest one was my ob/peds/psy hesi I'm not sure if its b/c the teacher wasn't good or because it was harder or b/c I was trying to pass 2 kidney stones then and was drugged up while taking it

Anyway, everytime I have taken it I have read my hesi study book and practiced tons of NCLEX questions. I do the NCLEX ?s in my books and I have the nclex 3500 that I use. The HESI CD with the practices tests are harder than the real HESI test in my opinion but I also think the regular NCLEX ?s are easier than the HESI questions.

hi everyone,

Has anyone taken V4 and has hints?

I did, I just took it a few days ago but failed to make the cut.. pm me your email so I can give you some feedback. I need some feedbacks too, thanks!

My email is [email protected]

Very interested, please contact me!

Could you give me some hints on the hesi RN V-4. I just took V-3 and almost passed, now freaking out. 4th time taking

PM me your emails, i'll send them to you

My email is [email protected] thanks so much

Hi I need HESI version 2 information. Be willing to swap Version 1 information.

[email protected]

I would greatly appreciate any info for test 3 of the hesi exit!

Hey could you give me some pointers on HESI RN V-4? I take it Friday morning. Here is my email address: [email protected]

I need feedback on V-3 and V-4, or either of the two pleaseee. the exam is next monday, but not sure if geting V-3 or 4. email: [email protected]

I did, I just took it a few days ago but failed to make the cut.. pm me your email so I can give you some feedback. I need some feedbacks too, thanks!

I can't seem to be able to PM you, I have to take Version1 soon, if you're able to provide pointers I would appreciate it. since I have yet to take it I have no idea what I can provide to aide in your success; however I have done tons of research and here's where I have found free HESI practices: Hesi Exit Common Themes / Flashcards - Create Free Flashcards & Achieve Your Dream ... Become A Nurse ...: HESI (which this one scroll to the bottom and download the doc that ends with .exe and then follow the instructioins at the top for if it says there are no more liscenses.) if you're able to email me some pointers, send it to [email protected] (there's an underscore between the mercedes and the adam)

December: I don't think the flashcards will help.. I studied the HESI Comprehensive review for the nclex-rn and it didn't help, I only saw 2 or 3 answers taken from that book. If you already know the material, then I suggest you practice your test-taking skills.

PM me your emails, i'll send them to you

I can't PM because I haven't posted 15 times/posts on here....please email me at [email protected] (underscore between the mercedes and adam). thanks!

Good luck with your studies....email me at [email protected]

Is there anyway I can view you HESI study packet for version 3

I also need help with hesi version 3 n 4 for 2010, can anyone help me?

i need info on version 2. have study packet for v1 for swap

i need info on version 2. have study packet for v1 for swap. [email protected]

I've always heard that there are four. Its funny you say that about V3, b/c I heard that V2 was harder than 3, and that V3 was comparable to V1. But who really knows.....its all subjective in a sense.

We had a Hesi Review at school w/ an Evolve person and this question was asked. Her response was that there are definitely 4 versions in use, but a school can always request an additional, which they will create from their test bank.

In our class of 88, 50 students passed the first time, 39 didn't. On the second retake, approx half passed V2. With the grace of God, I was fortunate to pass the first time with a 1050. In all honesty, I really didn't think it was that bad. But of course its easy to say that in retrospect and from this side of the fence!

Thanks for the input. That helps to know it was straight out of an evolve person's mouth. I guess most use versions 1-4, as I thought. I scored an 821 on the last one. I was sure I was going to pass it while I was taking it, and was even thinking about the fact that I could finally let people know that I passed. Then I thought, wait a minute, don't get ahead of yourself. I was on question 133, and decided to take my one and only break thinking it would do me good b/c I did not want to rush through it, and miss some by mistake.

When I came back I read too much into the questions, and changed my answers from my first reponse. I realized this after looking at my rationales, only it was too late. I scored an 821, and I believe I just needed a few more correct to pass. A few more that I ended up second guessing myself on and changed.

Unfortunately, I have to take it again in the summer. I only have to make-up some clinicals and then we can take HESI over again. I think... That's why I was wondering about the versions, and if we would be given the same ones v1-4. I know the other school located in this town just used v1-4 again. However, they are somewhat different, yet some questions are the same as well. Don't know if the retest versions will change though. I guess I'll see when I get there.

Still interested in other responses...

There are 4 HESIs (exit). A school can request that 3 additional versions be created if it wants. The questions do not stay the same in each version from year to year; the questions move around. I don't know for sure how often the questions are moved around but I know they are actively trying out 15 new questions with each test, questions that don't count towards the score. They are randomly placed within each test.

Does anyone have a study guide to Hesi v-4 or helpful hints?

Hi,

There are 7 versions of the Hesi test and each version itself has 3 tests within itself. For example: V-1a, V-1b, V-1c, V-2a, V-2b, V-3c, etc. Our school had all 7 versions and I was lucky I got Version 2 cause some of my classmates who had Version 1 failed.

I hope this helps.

Any help with v-4?

there are 6-7 versions each exam is different and questions are not always the same format and some questions are more difficult,

HESI is really hard, but I know a few people who have passed and they studied Saunders and 3500. It worked for them, but not me

I am using the HESI study guide and CD and can't get my scores on the CD out of the 70-75% range on Med/Surg. People have told me the practice exams on the CD's are a lot harder than the actual exams. Does anyone have any input? I take a "practice" HESI at school tomorrow and I'm scared out of my mind!

I got 887 on the hesi first attempt but did not pass because my school requires 950. I am going to take the next one in couple of days. I am studying and praying hard. Also practicing questions in the Kaplan book.Best of luck every one!

WOW! a 950 huh.........that is wacked. The lowest score I heard for passing the Hesi was an 825. My school needed an 870 but only allowed to take it 2 times. Your school doesn't play around :uhoh21:

Good luck. I will cross my fingers and toes for you!

Unfortunately we are nation's toughest nursing program; also, my school always get hardest hesi versions. It is all for them to keep up their reputation. It kinda sucks.

i passed hesi... 

HESI is really hard, but I know a few people who have passed and they studied Saunders and 3500. It worked for them, but not me
