[Symposium Presentation] The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between Health Education Systems, Inc., (HESI) exam scores and student success in an associate degree (ADN) nursing program. A longitudinal, bivariant correlational design was used to measure the relationships among students' HESI Admission Assessment (A2) exam scores, their customized Mid-Curricular (MC) exam scores, and their HESI Exit Exam (E2) scores. The accuracy of the E2 in predicting NCLEX-RN success was also examined.áOf the seven academically-oriented exams that comprise the A2 (math, reading comprehension, grammar, vocabulary, chemistry, anatomy and physiology, and biology), only the math and reading comprehension exams were administered to the study population. A benchmark score of 70% was set for each of the A2 exams administered, as well as the composite A2 score, which is the average score for all academically-oriented exams administered. The MC was administered half way through the curriculum, and the E2, administered during the last semester of the curriculum. The faculty designated a HESI score of 850 as the benchmark score for both the MC and the E2. Data were obtained from 139 students who took the A2, MC, E2, and NCLEX-RN between August 2002 and October 2004. Findings indicated that there was a significant positive correlation between students' reading comprehension scores with their MC scores (P = .001) and a significant positive correlation between students' MC scores and their E2 scores (P = .05). Additionally, there was a significant positive correlation of studentsÆ E2 scores and their NCLEX-RN outcomes (P = .001). The E2 was 94.55% accurate in predicting NCLEX-RN success; three students who scored above 900 on the E2 failed the NCLEX-RN on their first attempt.
