At risk students: Do theory grades + standardized examinations = success?
Nurse Educator (2006)
  • D Stuenkel, San Jose State University

Early identification of students at risk of failing the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses allows nurse educators and students the opportunity to develop a remediation plan. The author describes one program's systematic review and exploration of the predictive ability of standardized examinations, nursing course theory grades, and entrance criteria for identifying students at risk. Best predictors at 3 points in the curriculum (entrance, midway, and the semester before graduation) are discussed.
