Abstract

Health Education Systems Incorporated (HESI) is an Elsevier company that provides educational material and exams that aim to improve nursing education and pass rates on the nurse-licensing exam (NCLEX). Numerous studies have examined the relationship between HESI exams and NCLEX pass rates in various nursing programs throughout the country. However, improving the implementation of HESI in nursing programs has not been the focus of much research. The purpose of this study was to identify possible improvements that could be made in the use of HESI in order for it to better serve the educational needs of students in the Murray State University School of Nursing. A mixed methods approach was used in this study, and a one-time survey consisting of eight items was administered to nursing students at Murray State in each semester of the program during the fall of 2016. The data collected in these surveys was analyzed, and the results were used to improve the use of HESI in Murray State’s School of Nursing and better the education of current and future nursing students.
