This study compares at-risk nursing students who are NCLEX-RN passers and at-risk nursing students who are NCLEX-RN failures on the basis of demographic, academic, and pre-enrollment variables, and outcomes measures. Assessment criteria for at-risk nursing students include: Cumulative college GPA < 2.0; Cumulative nursing GPA <2.20; repeated nursing or supportive courses; nonpassing grades of D/F and W (withdrawal) in supportive and nursing courses; placement on university or nursing program probation status; and recommendation by academic advisors and the School of Nursing Student Progression and Recognition (SP&R) committee. At-risk students are required to enroll in specific Partnership in Learning for Utmost Success (PLUS) courses if in a semester their CGPA is less than 2.0 or if their CNGPA is less than 2.0. The PLUS program is based on research and theory that has emerged regarding the issue of retention. Within the last eleven years, nursing students increasingly utilized the PLUS retention program. The sample consisted of nursing graduates (146) from the classes of 1996 to 2000. Demographic and academic variables which were shown to be statistically significant (by t-tests and chi-square tests) in contributing to the success of NCLEX-RN passers were: university admission status, English placement grammar and total scores, math placement scores, Nelson Denny vocabulary and total scores, ethnicity, transfer GPA, number of PLUS courses taken and number of semesters at risk Outcome measures which showed statistically significant differences were the Mosby Assess Test scores, CGPA at graduation, and CNGPA at graduation . Educational Resources Incorporated (ERI) pre-RN scores were not different. The investigators found that by tracking scholastic profiles of students, patterns emerged that assisted in classifying students who are most likely to pass or fail the NCLEX-RN
