HESI Tutoring & Test Preparation
Given your goal is to further your career by attending nursing school, the HESI should be a high priority. HESI (Health Education Systems Inc.) are standardized tests that assess relevant skills and knowledge related to nursing school. HESI exams are often a prerequisite for admission (HESI A2 exam) as well as matriculation as performance on the exam tends to correlate with one’s success in the field of nursing. Exams also function as practice for the NCLEX exams, nursing licensure exams. Therefore your performance on the HESI has a huge impact on your admissions competitiveness, financial aid options, and career as a whole. If you aspire to attend the best nursing school possible, then you must take your HESI preparation seriously.
Hesi exams consist of 7 topics:
- Reading Comprehension
- General Knowledge
- Anatomy Physiology
Personalized Studying Strategies
With such a broad and comprehensive test, you need to strategically approach your preparation. Begin with an HESI practice test. This will serve as a diagnostic baseline. The section in which you scored the lowest should be your first priority. The question then becomes, if you had difficulty with one or more section, do you feel confident in your ability to improve those weak areas? Preparation books are certainly helpful, but they cannot assess the specific skills you need to improve. They’re written to provide preparation for everyone. However no two students are exactly the same in needs nor in learning style.
A TutorNerds expert can specifically tailor your HESI preparation in order to efficiently and effectively produce results. Our HESI tutors can outline an organized approach to the HESI that fits with your needs as well as your schedule. Together, you will work through the concepts covered by the HESI in order to ensure you have a solid understanding of the material from the start. From there, you will cover hundreds, even thousands, of HESI questions. This will provide an opportunity for your tutor to explain typical types of questions and test-taking strategies while at the same time increasing your knowledge. This combination of total immersion with learning strategies designed specifically for you creates the optimal test preparation environment.
The HESI is a very significant building block of your application to nursing school. It’s one thing to work with a generic test preparation book, or even a HESI class. But to really optimize your admissions potential, you need to work with an expert who understands how the HESI fits into your entire application. Given your goals, what score is necessary? And how close are you to achieving that score? Are your goals realistic? TutorNerds HESI tutors and consultants will be able to provide you with the answers you need to put together a strong application. He or she will help you establish a list of goals with deadlines. Most importantly, you will have a supportive expert to provide feedback along the way.
HESI preparation is certainly intensive given the volume of material covered by the exam. But students consistently show increased scores with adequate preparation. We recommend students begin their preparation 12 to 24 weeks prior to their exam. We offer a free consultation with one of our nursing school admissions experts if you have any questions.
