The HESI Exit Exam: progression benchmark and remediation guide. Nurse Educ. 2003;28(3):141–145. CIN: Computers, Informatics, Nursing: May-June 2005 - Volume 23 - Issue 3S - p 49S-53S Buy Abstract Evidence exists indicating that remediation positively affects NCLEX success of students with known academic deficits. However, specific benchmarks that identify students who are at risk of NCLEX failure and in need of remediation have not been identified. Following publication of research findings that established the reliability and validity of the HESI Exit Exam (E2) as an accurate measure of students' NCLEX preparedness, nurse educators increasingly chose to administer the E2 to their senior students. This study investigated using the E2 as a benchmark for progression and as a guide for remediation. © 2005 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
