Abstract:
Nursing students who are successful in completion of baccalaureate nursing programs have certain characteristics. In this ongoing study of students over an extended period of time, researchers have identified trends and correlations, both over the last ten years, and for the most recent three years. Analysis of data collected at exit surveys of graduates of this baccalaureate program indicated those social factors that affected timely completion of the 4 year program, as well as characteristics of those students completing the program in an accelerated manner. In addition certain long held beliefs about students have been confronted, such as the effect of student employment during the educational program, gender, dependents, Aboriginal status, and past healthcare experience. Attrition from the program, calculated yearly based on those students who completed the year in the expected time frame and those who completed in a delayed manner, has been explored to identify entry demographics that discriminate between these two groups. Identification of social demographic information that correlates with achievement, both year completion and program completion, are explored. The benefits of having this information during the student admission process are discussed, along with the ethics of using past student experiences to select incoming students.
