Objective: This presentation is will describe findings regarding the accuracy of the Health Education Systems, Inc. (HESI) Exit Exam (E2) in predicting NCLEX-RN success for associate degree (ADN), baccalaureate degree (BSN), and diploma nursing students. Design: Descriptive, comparative designs employing chi squares were used to determine the accuracy of the E2 in predicting NCLEX-RN-RN outcomes. Population, Sample, Setting, Years: The sample consisted of more than 25,000 graduating RN students who took the E2 prior to graduation during one of the 5 academic years studied. Responses of school administrators to questionnaires and their students’ aggregate E2 scores comprised the data. Concept or Variables Studied Together: Predictive accuracy of the E2 by academic year and type of program, and comparison of student E2 scores in five scoring intervals with their performances on the NCLEX-RN were examined. Methods: Of the 705 questionnaires distributed annually to RN program administrators, 596 (84.54%) responded. Predictive accuracy of the E2 was calculated, and chi square analyses were used to detect differences between expected and observed frequencies among NCLEX-RN outcomes of students scoring in each of the five scoring intervals, and among student scores by program type and across five academic years studied. Findings: The E2 was found to be 96.36% to 98.30% accurate in predicting NCLEX-RN success across five academic years. No significant differences were found in the predictive accuracy of the E2 by program type or among years studied, and failures of the NCLEX-RN increased as students E2 scores decreased. Conclusions: The E2 was a highly accurate predictor of NCLEX-RN success, regardless of type of nursing program tested. As students’ E2 scores decreased, so did their likelihood of NCLEX-RN failure. Implications: The E2 was determined to be a valid predictor of NCLEX-RN success and as such can be used as an outcome measure for nursing curricula.
