ATTENTION: Nursing Students ...
HESI RN Exit Exam
With 900 Or More"
If you need to pass the HESI RN Exit Exam, LPN Exit Exam, or one of the HESI Specialty
Exams… I'll show you the exact steps and specific directions to be successful on your exam.
Are you feeling nervous about your HESI Exit Exam?
Are you worried not knowing what topics you’ll be tested on?
Did you already fail the HESI test once or more?
Do you need a HESI score of 900 or higher?
Are you looking for HESI exam preparation materials that are actually USEFUL (and help over 90% of students succeed)?
If your answer is yes to any of the questions above, please give me 5 minutes to explain to you the essentials of the HESI Exit Exam, and what methods you should be using to prepare in order to successfully pass your exam.
I’ll show you the exact steps and specific directions to help you be successful — and you don't have to be a brilliant, straight A student to do it...
As you probably know, the HESI Exit Exam measures your readiness for the NCLEX examination.
Schools that use the HESI Exit trust on HESI (and Elsevier, the publisher) to make sure that students who pass this test will pass the NCLEX at once.
To prepare their students, most schools recommend regular NCLEX prep.
However, one Google search will show you that many students find that ...
The HESI Exit Exam is
much harder than the NCLEX Exam!
The HESI exam is a very reliable predictor of NCLEX success. Research shows that if you can pass the HESI Exit, you are extremely likely to pass the NCLEX.
But there is no research supporting the other way around is true as well...
Many schools use the HESI exams to see if their students are ready (or perhaps overly ready) to succeed on the NCLEX.
And some schools have even taken this practice to the next level.
Those schools only allow students that pass the HESI Exit to take the NCLEX. (They receive an artificially inflated NCLEX pass rate by doing so, which in turn will attract new students to the school.)
Some states have regulations that cause nursing schools with a first time NCLEX pass rate of 87% or above to receive
additional money from the state (and private schools will, most likely, attract more investors).
And practically all states have a Nursing Commission that requires nursing programs to maintain an 80 percent pass rate.
Therefore, it’s only logical that nursing schools do everything in their power to increase their first time pass rates. And the HESI Exit is one of the tools to accomplish this.
However, as an unfortunate side result... Some students are not allowed to take the NCLEX
simply because they failed their HESI Exit (despite completing their entire nursing program)...
Often, these students are forced to bear remediation costs, sometimes even another full year in study costs.
Some schools even have the "friendly practice" of kicking students out of their nursing
program because the students are "not expected" to pass the NCLEX (because they failed the HESI).
Although you can argue about the ethics of this practice, since you are reading this letter,
I can only assume you want to make sure you do not end up in the
"no pass" category.
If that’s you - please take a deep breath.
You see - the HESI Exit Exam does NOT define you.
It does NOT define how good of a nurse you will be.
It does NOT define how caring and kind you are.
It does NOT define how hard working or disciplined you are.
But, although the HESI doesn't define you... If you're reading this, you'll have to pass the test. It might even be a prerequisite to graduation.
So what methods should you use to succeed?
When I personally had to study for the HESI exam, I found many contradicting stories both online and in real life.
And, to be honest, I was somewhat upset that my nursing school wanted me to pass the HESI exam,
even though I had successfully completed their entire academic program!
They essentially denied me the opportunity to graduate unless I passed the HESI Exit Exam.
It was difficult for me to have spent so long working towards graduation, only to be told that: "Ultimately, it comes down to one exam".
As you can understand, I studied very hard for my HESI RN Exit Exam.
I used the HESI Study Book, with case studies, directly from Evolve, Elsevier. I used the Saunders Comprehensive Review Book, the Hurst Review Online and a few other resources.
I believed this would make sure that I passed the HESI Exit Exam. Like you, I had to pass the
HESI in order to take the NCLEX. I was urged: "make 100% sure you pass your HESI exit exam".
After weeks of studying, the HESI exit test day finally arrived.
I clearly remember sitting behind the school computer, and seeing a window that looked similar
I entered my Student ID, the HESI Exam Access Codes, and pressed Continue.
And, because I'm taking the time to write this letter to you, I guess you may have already figured out what happened next.... Cue the drama:
I was SHOCKED
by the real HESI Exit Exam.
Although I can laugh about it now, I am dead serious. I was floored. Nursing school had taught me Saunders, Saxon and Mosby
questions, but HESI questions were like no other questions I had seen. The
HESI required so much more critical thinking!
I don't want to scare you or put horror stories out there (there are so many already).
But, in my opinion, these questions definitely explained why around 60% of students in my nursing
class did not pass. Yes, we'd done review material. Yes, we'd done Saunders and stuff like that.
At the time, I thought the HESI Exit Exam was VERY difficult. Yet, I was a good test taker and always felt quite sure about my
However, on the HESI Exit Exam, for about 15% of the questions, I was VERY unsure about the answer.
On another 25% I was somewhat unsure. I didn't know many answers from studying my books and I had to
rely heavily on vague notions and test-taking strategies.
Needless to say …
I completely FAILED my first Exit Exam.
I was afraid I would never get the chance to take the NCLEX exam because of my HESI score.
I was afraid that after spending all my time, money, and hard work on my nursing program, I
would be denied the opportunity to fulfill my dream of being a nurse.
Fortunately - because 60% of my class had failed the first exam - I was given a second
However, I knew I had to prepare differently this time around.
On my second attempt ...
I used a different technique
to study for the HESI Exam.
You can't imagine my joy and pride when, several weeks later, I heard that I had passed the HESI Exit Exam with a 1046 score!
Because there are SO MANY people saying they failed or got JUST above the cut-off, I went into the HESI Exam thinking I might get a 920 MAX (we needed 900 to pass).
A 20 point margin leaves very little room for error, so that was definitely a scary feeling!
However, as you should realize by now: there is some hope!
I only missed 6% of the questions (!)
because I knew what to expect,
had improved my critical thinking skills,
and used good test-taking strategies.
After passing, I discovered that the majority of people who passed had also congruently and thoroughly used my new study technique.
Some people who failed the HESI Exam also used this technique, but they did NOT pay as much attention and focus on my technique as the people who did pass the Exam.
I believe this technique can help you finish your nursing studies.
Your first HESI Exam might be in a couple of months, or right around the corner. Perhaps you
already took the HESI Exit Exam, and you have to take it again. Whatever situation you find
yourself in, I promise I won't let you down.
You can score higher
than 900 on your HESI Exit!
If you have to take the test, and you are seeking GOOD objective advice for the HESI Exam, then you should know:
HESI requires a lot of critical thinking, so be ready to put serious thought into each question.
And I mean really focus on critical thinking, because, essentially, that's all the test is!
It's 160 questions of intense critical thinking!
You know how Saunders, Saxon and Mosby
questions have all these methods for eliminating answers? Don't count on them for the HESI.
Of course, success on the HESI relates with how well you read the questions and pick the best answer.
But, for the average student, there will be at least 3 answers that look great on the majority of the questions, and none of the simple answer eliminating strategies will work.
Therefore, my advice for passing the HESI EXIT is simple.
Be Ready For Critical Thinking!
“Practice, Practice, Practice!!!”
The strategy is simple: Knowing what kind of questions you will face on your HESI RN Exit Exam is your best preparation for actually passing the exam.
For example, buying the HESI practice test from Elsevier in the bookstore or on
their website will help, but the number of questions are limited, and you likely have it already.
I did the Kaplan Qbank, the Comprehensive Exam from the HESI NCLEX Review book, Hurst Review Online, and some questions from the Saunders book.
This was definitely useful, as, back then, no websites were available that focused solely on helping students succeed on the HESI.
After a while, I understood the test taking strategies. And because I carefully studied the rationales, my knowledge of how to answer these questions improved.
You see, a lot of my friends who DIDN'T pass the HESI Exam read Saunders. However, they didn't
do the questions!
You have to make the questions!!!
But, in all honesty, most importantly you should ...
Practice With The Exact
Kind Of Questions You Will
Encounter On Your Exam
Being able to see (and, especially, to understand the rationale for) 50, 100 or even 150 HESI Exam style questions can easily up your score by a hundred, if not more.
If you've taken the HESI Exit before, you were probably allowed to view rationales for the questions you failed.
You probably remembered some of the difficult questions you faced, and if you missed them, you (hopefully) learned from the rationales… and won’t make those mistakes again.
I think we can all agree:
Knowing what type of questions to expect on your exam will help you study more effectively.
Being able to practice with the exact type of questions that you will face on your exam will help you understand where to focus your attention. It will help you find your weak spots and, perhaps, identify topics that turn out to be more important than you thought they'd be (better to find out now than later!).
Most importantly, going through this process will make you feel comfortable with the kind of questions that you will see on testing day.
Which means that, yes...
You can enter your HESI Exit Exam
with confidence on testing day!
In my case, our school required us to pass the HESI Exit Exam with a 900 in order to graduate. Fellow students who failed the test had to take 5 weeks of remediation classes... Taught by a non-HESI-certified instructor... As you can understand, it did not help the students at all. Most of them also failed the second, even the third time around.
Our school made us buy the HESI books. They simply handed them over to us and said “Here, read this...”. Guess what? Not sufficient!
We were told to do 200-400 questions a day from the NCLEX 3500. I did NCLEX 3500 every day and
thought it was a JOKE.
Guess what? The real HESI Exam questions are on a whole different level!
I Wasted My Time
Studying The Wrong Things!
What many friends didn't realize is that you HAVE to practice with similar HESI Exam questions
in order to understand what kind of exam you are dealing with. You need to practice with realistic
questions in order to see if you are actually adequately prepared.
I paid 100 dollars for the HESI NCLEX Review and Saunders books.
I paid 200 dollars for the Kaplan Qbank.
I paid over 400 dollars for Hurst Review.
Then there's remediation, and of course all the “normal” study books and school fees!
I Wasted My Money!
I paid more than 700 dollars in study materials for the HESI Exit Exam and was horrified when I
found that many materials helped me NOTHING at all during the actual Exit Exam!
I was shocked.
But I was determined that my nursing career would not be stopped by this one test…
We, nurses, are a hard-working bunch by nature, aren’t we?
As you know by now, I went from failing my first Exit (together with 60% of my class) to passing with a top 1% score of 1046.
And let me tell you something.
YOU can do this, too.
If you worried you’re never going to pass — STOP. This is attainable.
Here's what you need...
Why HESI-Style Prep?
You might wonder - why not use regular NCLEX-focused prep to prepare for the HESI Exit?
Of course, using quality review products will not hurt your score.
The topics are similar.
The Elsevier website itself proudly claims:
“Questions are written like those you'll see on the NCLEX”!
And I’m sure Elsevier intends for their questions to be identical to those on the NCLEX!
But have you done a quick Google search lately to see what real life students are actually saying?
Have you asked any students who took BOTH exams in a row, and checked what they thought?
Let me give you some examples of issues I regularly hear about.
I'll start with lab values.
As you may know, the ONLY lab values that need to be identified on the NCLEX are those listed in the NCSBN NCLEX Test Plan.
Others such as, for example, albumin (which isn't on the list), are stated as ‘normal,' ‘decreased’ or ‘increased.'
So while the labs might list ‘potassium 4.1,’ a NCLEX question will only say ‘decreased albumin’ and NOT provide a numeric value at all.
(Or, sometimes, the client lab value is given, with a reference range for comparison).
And, as such, most quality review products for the NCLEX follow that guideline in writing their questions. Most lab values and drug levels are written as elevated or decreased (NOT as exact levels - except for the ones in the NCSBN Test Plan).
Great - you might say.
But how does that apply to me?
Well - guess what?
Students who took the HESI are complaining they got tested on labs that are not in the NCLEX test plan (and, as such, most NCLEX prep products won’t prepare you for them)!
Maybe you're aware that the NCSBN Test Plan for the NCLEX changes ever 3 years.
For example, in 2010, urine-specific gravity and RBCs were removed as “lab values to know” (while creatinine, PT, PTT, APTT & INR were added).
In 2013, more lab values were dropped, incl albumin and calcium.
(In 2016, almost no changes were made.)
In addition, up till 2013, the NCLEX expected you to identify a list of lab values, and recognize “deviations from normal” for another seperate list of lab values.
In 2013, this was simplified to 1 list of lab values that you "need to know".
And current NCLEX prep obviously focuses on this list.
Many years have passed since, and, as such, most students preparing for the NCLEX or HESI Exit are not even aware of this “history” and these “old lists”.
Yet, to this date, you can see students posting on public forums; complaining that they were tested on “unknown” lab values on the HESI.
Labs that aren't on the current NCSBN list, but were listed in previous test plans...
Elsevier is probably working to eliminate such differences.
But if you are expecting an albumin lab value to be listed as ‘normal,' ‘decreased’ or ‘increased’…
And instead, you find the question asking about a client with a serum albumin level of x g/dL…
And you are expected to know whether that means low or high albumin…
Now - whether you, at this moment, know this exact lab value or not, doesn’t matter (unless your exam is a few hours away of course).
Surprisingly, there are quite a few examples.
And perhaps, by the time you read this, Elsevier has pulled these “unorthodox” questions from their test. And perhaps they have not. They surely won’t email us about it.
The most important thing for me is that you are 100% prepared.
And that’s why you need a program that goes beyond the typical NCLEX prep, and focuses on helping you succeed on the HESI Exit, not just the NCLEX. It's why you need real HESI-style prep
Let’s look at one more example.
Instead of lab values, let’s look at medications.
On the NCLEX, you don’t need to know an extremely broad selection of drugs.
Most of the questions are NOT about random or far out medications.
There is a focus on the “need to know” stuff (which makes sense for the RN level).
On the HESI, again and again, students who have taken the exam and failed, say the same thing:
They simply weren’t prepared for some of the lesser known medications covered on their HESI exams.
They felt the selection of “need to know” drugs on the HESI was broader compared to the suggested lists in their run-of-the-mill NCLEX prep.
That's why you need a large diversity of medications covered in your practice questions. It's why you
practice questions on "lesser heard of" medications such as, for example, Ezetimibe and its effects. And many, many more.
The no 1 goal... The most important thing, is that you are fully prepared for everything that can and will be thrown at you.
And I could give so many more examples.
We could talk about diseases...
And someone might say: these are small differences.
Yes, some differences are small.
But what happens when you run into 5, or even 10, of these “small” differences on your HESI Exit Exam?
You want to be prepared.
And that's why you want to practice and learn in an environment that's 100% focused on helping you succeed on the HESI.
It's why you want:
HESI-style practice designed to challenge
- and teach you.
Because of my frustration with the HESI Exit Exam, back in 2010, I created a unique program to
help students who need to take the HESI.
Over the years, I've been fortunate enough to help thousands of nursing students with their exams.
I'm super grateful to be able to help these students realize their dream of becoming a nurse,
as most are hard working, disciplined, kind and truly caring.
As of 2018, I've helped over 90% of my students to succeed due to ONE THING...
The ability to have realistic practice - including detailed explanations - and being able to
build on your weak spots from there...
If you're looking to pass the HESI RN Exit, LPN Exit or one of the HESI Specialty Exams, this
is the surefire path...
Here's the good news:
I'd like to invite you to try my online practice program, where you can access my custom made
database of premium HESI RN Exit Exam, LPN Exit Exam and HESI Specialty Exam practice questions.
I assigned a team of experienced writers, MSN nurse educators who have all extensively written exam questions for major nursing publications, to create the best and most up-to-date HESI exam practice questions possible.
Years of helping students, like yourself, succeed on the HESI, has allowed my team of academic nurse educators to create some of the best HESI exam practice questions available.
With their help, each single question is prepared to challenge you, and teach you with extensive rationales.
We continuously update and improve our questions, based on the feedback of thousands of students. All to ensure you get the best and most realistic practice experience.
We use the HESI conceptual framework for the development of critical thinking test items and
review our questions using validity-test blueprinting and reliability analyses.
It doesn't matter if it's going to be your first or fourth time... All these questions will
perfectly prepare you for THIS year's 2018 and NEXT
year's 2019 HESI RN Exit Exam!
Of course, all questions are at the application/analysis level of difficulty and you’ll be
able to practice for both the HESI Exit and all HESI Specialty Exams.
If you are a LPN, know that every member gets access to both our LPN and RN questions.
(There's no need to make a special "LPN" selection when purchasing).
As a bonus, my private, member-only website also includes my HESI Exam Review Study Guide. It covers straight
to the point advice on how to study for and pass the HESI Exit. I've seen students make the same mistakes year in, year out, and I've written this guide to help you navigate the pitfalls of the HESI. Just this guide alone will give you a strong leg up compared to other students who haven't read it.
To make sure you're covered, there's a private, exclusive forum, as well. On this forum, I will answer ANY question you might still have about the HESI Exit
Exam after going through all my training. You can also privately communicate with current HESI
Exam students and previous HESI test takers who know EXACTLY what you can expect on your exam.
As a result, customer surveys show that over 90% of students
who take the HESI Exit within two months of joining the program succeed.
HESI-Style Practice That Works...
Just to recap, this isn’t like the practice section in the back of your study books. There’s no fluff or filler - just battle-tested practice that is working to help students succeed right now.
And the rationales for every question are easy to read and understand.
Of course, the questions themselves are not easy. They are very challenging. As they should be.
With more than 3,000 questions, you can use the program for months. Some students use it for years (using our HESI Specialty practice exams everytime they get tested on a new Specialty Subject). Or you can take a focused approach, go through the practice based on your weak spots, and prepare yourself in as little as 2 weeks or less.
You’ll immediately “get” the battle plan, my steps for success, as well as my exam review guide which will help you focus your efforts.
But don't take my word for it.

For Less Than What You Would
Normally Pay For Coffee
You Can Now Start
To Pass The HESI Exit
As I calculated above, I paid more than 700 dollars in study materials to pass the HESI.
And that's on top of the fortune I already spent on nursing school in the first place.
Even worse, after I failed the HESI, I had to pay hundreds extra in forced remediation
classes. Classes that didn't help.
Can you imagine how much money I would have lost if I would have been kicked out of nursing
school for failing the HESI... again?
You're probably wondering how much you need to pay to join my HESI Exam Study Insider Program.
So let me ask you... How much would you be willing to invest to pass the HESI Exit Exam?
For me, as I was only allowed to take the HESI 3 times, I know the answer was EVERYTHING.
But don't worry.
As I've been through the experience myself, I will NOT charge you a fortune. Not even close to
You spent tons on your nursing education.
You've probably spent close to a thousand dollars on books, some of them probably made you wonder why.
If you get a private tutor, it WILL cost you a fortune. The real problem is he/she might not
even be a HESI Exam expert, much less knows how to properly prepare you for the exam. Results
can take weeks if not months assuming you can afford to pay for every hour of the private
tutoring. My job is to save you from resorting to this option with much quicker results.
If you're taking NCLEX review classes, know that the HESI and NCLEX exams are not the same,
and although passing the HESI practically guarantees you'll pass the NCLEX, this is NOT the
other way around!
Although you might feel good succeeding on the NCLEX practice tests you get, this doesn't mean
you will pass the HESI. At best, the NCLEX prep questions will help you do OK on your HESI.
If not, you will fail your HESI and need a resit. Or more remediation. And all that will cost
you a lot of money.
The kicker is this… doing nothing costs you even more. If you even dare put a price on what
failing the test is costing you. The extra stress and anxiety will steal from your exam
results too. If you want happiness and peace of mind, then you know it's not worth it. You
don't have to suffer.
The good news is…
…you can easily prevent all this from happening to you with just one decision.
And the even better news is you won’t be paying anything close to the amount I had to pay to
pass my HESI.
You don’t need to invest $1,000, $500, or even $300 to join my HESI Exam Study Insider
