HESI Compass Challenges Students Before Next Generation NCLEX® (NGN)

By integrating clinical judgment practice with NGN cases during your final NCLEX review, you can help students alleviate test day anxiety before walking into a more challenging exam. HESI Compass helps you continue the thread of NGN preparation in your curriculum all the way up to, and beyond graduation.

  • Modeled after new NCSBN approved item types, questions inside the cases follow the same format and fidelity of items.
  • Standalone and unfolding cases are integrated into students’ review modules and individualized study content.
  • Items are non-scored and offered as extra practice in clinical judgment, so you can begin capturing true NGN performance data in the final weeks of your program.

Student feedback was much faster and easier in HESI Compass because I could see that their [coach] had already reached out to them, I didn’t necessarily have to
