Abstract:
This presentation will discuss a retrospective study used to select indicators for success in a Collaborative Nursing Degree program. The study included a multiple regression analysis (N = 839 students) across several years. Early findings suggested that high school biology and performance in Year One biology and psychology were highly correlated with academic success in Year Two of the programme. On the basis of the importance of Year One grades for academic success in second year, a student success strategy was implemented which included a series of tutorials, peer support and learning teams. These tutorials and activities were seen to boost student's performance in the first year. Performance in second year courses is currently under investigation.
