Abstract:
Session presented on Saturday, July 25, 2015: Purpose ' to assist repeat NCLEX'-RN candidates to be successful on subsequent attempts. Methods ' Unsuccessful candidates are invited to attend a Success Seminar for Repeat Test Takers. A seminar was developed with the premise that students don't really know enough about the NCLEX'- RN; what it is testing, how to best prepare, how to attack the actual testing, etc. This seminar is held on line so that students see and hear an expert while also having the opportunity to chat with experts via text. Results ' Students who attended the Success Seminar reported passing rates Year NCSBN Reported Passing Rate* Success Seminar Reported Passing Rate 2011 Implications ' The National Council of State Boards of Nursing reported a 47.42% success rate for repeat U.S. educated NCLEX'-RN test takers for 2013. Repeat international test takers accomplished only a 15.12% success rate. 'Students who are unsuccessful at passing the NCLEX'-RN often feel lost and alone. They need a mentor but don't know who will help them since they've already graduated from nursing school. 'Could guidance/mentoring for the unsuccessful candidates improve their passing rate on the NCLEX'-RN? Could this methodology assist first time test takers as well as repeat test-takers? 'Target Audience ' Unsuccessful NCLEX'-RN students NCSBN published NCLEX results, retrieved: https://www.ncsbn.org/1237.htm Brief Description: The National Council of State Boards of Nursing reported a 47.42% success rate for repeat U.S. educated NCLEX'-RN test takers for 2013.' A Success Seminar was developed for repeat test takers based on the premise that unsuccessful candidates don't really know enough about the NCLEX'- RN; what it is testing, how to best prepare, how to attack the actual testing, etc.' The passing results for three cohorts attending the Success Seminar were 63.89%, 72.79%, and 60.84%.
