Has anyone taken the HESI exam that PJC is requiring this year to get into the nursing school program? Just wondering what your experience was with it.

Did you ever think this test is in place to weed out those who may not academically be prepared to meet the demands of a program like this? I'd say if your friend had taken the test 3 times and can't pass it, they should continue on with the general required courses, and try again at a later time. Obviously their skills are lacking in some key areas.

Do they give you a breakdown in what academic subjects you're having problems passing?

There are practice tests online. It's just like a high school standardized test. Know decimals and percentages, and know conversions like liters and ounces.

I agree. That's exactly why they give that test.

Yes, I have taken it many years ago but I believe it is of the same general concept. If you are weak in an area you can obtain practice tests before you take it or if you have taken it they will show you the individual test scores so you can see what you areas you have your weaknesses.
