As a nursing teacher you know what is best for your students, and unfortunately you can't always get what you need to bring out what is best in them. During nursing school many men and women are balancing jobs, family, and school to pursue their career.
Fortunately, you can give them tools to help them succeed. One of the most daunting tests in nursing is the HESI. Using tools like a HESI study guide or HESI study questions can help them move on to be successful nurses.
These resources as well as your guidance will help them pass and move on to further studying and better careers. There are plenty of sources online that are easy to access and often inexpensive or free. A HESI online practice test is a great way to practice for the HESI if you have virtual students or some who cannot always attend class.
You can create materials as well. While you can give them plenty of online, and pre-made practice tests, your own advice is always best. Creating your own nursing exam practice test based off your own experience can make the test easier and even help them later in their careers.
You may think that sample HESI questions will not help students when it is actually time to take the test but by allowing them to see sample HESI questions and answers they will be able to understand the tone and format of the test. This means they can focus on the content and what they must improve before the test day.
But you can also use printable materials to supplement those activities, and sometimes that's just as important as setting the classroom on fire, if not more so. Everyone learns in their own particular way, after all, and a few worksheets here and there are a great way to clarify and reinforce lessons that have been taught along the way.
