Took the HESI yesterday!
It was a weird test. I don’t quite know how to feel about it…many of the questions I was just guessing on because they were discussing NG tubes and IV’s, which as J1s we haven’t learned yet. But apparently, the purpose of a HESI test is not what you know but how well you’re able to reason through the question and answer correctly.
Each question is weighted based on difficulty of the question. So, if you get more “hard” questions right then you get a higher score, even if you missed 15 questions, versus the person who only missed 10 questions yet got more “easy” questions right and ends up with a lower score.
But hey, for my first ever HESI I’d say I did pretty well! I got a score of 1116, which converts to 95%, putting me in the 97th percentile. Whoop! This also means that I’m completely done with my Concepts class and only have two more finals to go!!!
