[Leadership Session Presentation] The relationship between baccalaureate nursing student use of BlackboardTM and in-class performance in selected sophomore and junior nursing courses, semester and final grade point average, on-time graduation and success on the National Council Licensure Examination-Registered Nurse (NCLEX-RN) was examined.  A correlational, non-experimental, prospective study design was used. One hundred and sixteen students were evaluated from entrance into either a sophomore or junior nursing course through their first attempt on the NCLEX-RN.  Data analysis revealed a weak relationship between blackboard use and in-class student performance, however, a Pearson correlation between final grade point average (GPA) and course grades was moderately strong and statistically significant for all students (r= 0.712, p<0.0001).  Furthermore, a logistic regression model revealed a strong influence between final GPA, on-time graduation and the probability of passing the NCLEX-RN on the first attempt.  The authors will discuss application of these research findings and the use of technology to enhance undergraduate baccalaureate student academic performance.
